Noshtalgia is one of my favorite food sites, and Julie is starting to post some fall-ish recipes. As someone who hates summer but loves fall I welcome the change in the weather. Here's her latest recipe. It's for Apple Harvest Soup.
Apple Harvest Soup
4 slices day old bread
3 apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
1 lg. butternut squash, peeled and sliced
2 med. onions, sliced
4 c. chicken stock, canned or homemade
3/4 tsp. dried tarragon
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 c. apple wine, may substitute with apple cider
1/2 c. heavy cream
Make bread crumbs of the bread.
Place in stockpot with all ingredients up to apple wine. Simmer 30
minutes until vegetables are tender. Puree the mixture and reheat to
simmer. Add the apple wine and cream – do not boil. To serve, garnish
with dabs of sour cream.
