      I love the flavor that the dry cider imparted into this soup. I used Hornsby Hard Apple cider in this soup. Quick and easy to do. Made for Aussie Tag, Oct. 2008.

      Made for ZWT 4's trip to Canada. I haven't made a French onion soup in a long time, and this one makes me regret not doing so. Fabulous taste and easy to put together.

      What a great way to make French Onion Soup. The only thing I changed was the type of cheese as DS ate the Gruyere I had bought so I had to use Parmesan and Mozerall as it was all I had on hand, but it was still fantastic. The only change I will make next time is to use a low salt stock, the stock I used was very salty, (no fault of the recipe) I have been caught by stock before being too salty, so I should have known. But this is a fantastic recipe that I will be making again during the winter months. Everyone loved it and said it was so tasty and so filling. Thanks Amanda.
