"From Better Homes & Gardens....a wonderful autumn soup!"
Serving Size: 1 (239 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 4
"This is a very good soup. I made mine with apple juice, a bit of extra onions and reduced fat cheddar. Easy to put together and tastes very elegant!"
"Great fall soup ! I did omit the onions, and replaced with a teaspoon onion powder. I peeled the apples, and potatoes. I also used Granny Smith apples too. Made this also with some fresh apple cider made at the apple orchard nearby. The combination of flavors really stood out. Made for a great soup with recipe#432231, and we were completely satisified. Made for PRMR tag."
"5 star if you substitute broth for apple cider. I'm definitely not a fan of anything too sweet, and I think kids would really like this more than I did (well, I did still give it 5 stars!). I made no changes to this at all (very unusual for me), but next time I would use veggie broth instead of apple cider. Thank you! Made for ZWT6."
"I really liked this. I peeled the potatoes and apples, and think next time I'll leave the peels on the potatoes for some color. I used a granny smith apple, and loved the sharp cheddar with it. Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT6 Zingo by an Unruly Under the Influence."
"Wonderful soup for a wintry afternoon in Australia. I made this as written (except I didn't peel the potatoes). I would make a few other changes in future. I used only a tablespoon of flour, and thought that was too much. The soup has a lot of body anyway. Australian cider is sparkling or alcoholic, so those living Downunder can use plain unsweetened apple juice. And finally, I used the stick blender to eliminate about half of the chunks. Just seemed nicer sort of half smooth. Thanks for posting -- made a great lunch."
"What a nice "Autumn" type soup. However, it tasted just fine in the summer! I used a Gala, and think I might use a Granny Smith next time with a milder cheddar. I love using apple cider, so this pleased me very well. Thnx for sharing the recipe, loof. Made for the Voracious Vagabonds of ZWT 6."
"This is delish and so very simple! I never peel anything unless I have to (like gnocchi). I also used fresh thyme from the garden and 1/4 cup of half and half as part of the milk, which needed to be used up, but I think it added to the creamy taste. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT 6, Zingo."
"This is an absolutely great tasting soup ~ Loved the combo of the title ingredients! Although I did peel the apple & potatoes, I think, another time, I'll follow Northwest's example & leave them unpeeled (just think of the lost nutrition there)! Definitely a keeper of a recipe! [Made & reviewed for the Zingo part of ZWT6]"
"The contrasting flavors and textures in this soup are a winning combination. The natural sweetness of the apple and cider really dressed up the potatoes. I followed the recipe as written but left the peels on the apple and potatoes (personal preference), and I added a little more milk to make it a bit creamier. We really enjoyed this, and I will definitely make it again. Thanks, loof. Made for Zaar World Tour #6."
"Very nice flavor of apple, cheddar and a hint of thyme. I used French thyme and a braeburn apple in making this tonight. A mini food processor made chopping the onion, potatoes and apple fast work. It came out very thick so I added another cup of apple cider. This would be a very nice starter soup for a luncheon. Made for *1 2 3 Hit Wonders* game 2008"
"I loved that combination of flavors.... very autumn-y. I have a similar recipe, but it's gets pureed. I enjoyed this soup because it was not pureed and had chunkiness, but yet it had a thick, creamy texture. I used fat free half and half for the milk. Thanx for a great cold-weather soup!"
