I Love Apple Recipes During The Fall

Don’t know about you, but Pumpkin and Apples are my favorite Fall foods. As if you couldn’t tell…

If you’ve been around these parts for just a few weeks, you have noticed that I’m pretty much obsessed with these two lovelies. Then again, how can you go wrong with Apple Rings and Chocolate Pumpkin Peanut Butter Cups!! You just can’t. 

My apple recipes have all been inspired by my apple tree. It’s huge. It’s beautiful. And IT.IS.FULL! Well, it was full … now it’s on its last few apples and those are about to come down because of the first frost that we had last night. Blah. Can’t buhlieve we’re that much closer to winter. GAH! Anyways!

… okay, now that I think about it, this weather-thing ain’t that bad… before you know it, we will be knee-deep in peppermint and chocolate! YAY!

But, for now, it’s about the apples. (I’m still thinking about peppermint and chocolate) … focussss! Apples.

I asked my Facebook followers what apple recipe they would like to see first and the vote for soup won by a landslide!

This Apple Soup Recipe Is One of My Favorites

Have you ever had apples in soup? The first time I tasted apples in soup, I was at this little French Bistro called Bon Femme Cafe. It was small, it was dark, and very colorful. I loved it! Playing 1920’s jazz made me love it that much more! I used to frequent that place with my friends and the whole apples-in-soup just stuck with me.

I don’t have their recipe, nor is this soup anywhere near their version, but I love it. In fact, I love it more! As far as I see it, if it comes straight from your own kitchen, it will always taste better because of one extra ingredient – love! I sound like Marie from Everybody Loves Raymond, but that’s the truth… you agree, right?!

How To Make Apple Cheddar Soup

This soup starts off as any other soup recipe – onions, carrots, broth. I use my homemade veggie broth, but you are welcome to use whatever you’ve got. Chicken broth is fine, too. I also added a bit of apple juice to it! Don’t worry, it tastes great! If you don’t think you will like that, use broth or water instead. But I think you need to try it with the juice, first. Come awwwwn! Live on the edge for a bit, you daredevil, you!! πŸ˜‰

ENJOY!

    Finally got around to trying this. During a sudden cold snap when it felt like Boulder was having second thoughts about this whole “spring” thing, it was heaven in a cup.

    Because I was too much in a hurry to shop for ingredients beyond the cheddar cheese, I did it with some odd substitutions.

    Didn’t have: Green apples. Used: A braeburn that was somewhat past its crispness date.

    Didn’t have: Carrots. Used: A turnip.

    Didn’t have: Veggie broth. Used: “Better Than Bouillon” mushroom variety.

    Didn’t have: Apple juice. Used: Pyramid Apricot Ale.

    I love recipes that forgive weird substitutions. This is definitely one of them.

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      YAY! So happy to know you enjoyed it!! BTW, you sound just like me… I will find any and all substitutions just so that I don’t have to go to the store and pick up the exact ingredients. πŸ˜€

    We were definitely craving some of the same flavors last week. I posted a similar soup with butternut squash, apples, and chese. πŸ™‚ Now I want to try yours. I looks delicious and I know that I would absolutely love it! Great recipe!

  4. Jamie

    Oh how absolutely lucky to have an apple tree!!! I love baking with apples but I don’t cook with them often enough. I love the flavors in this soup and apples and cheddar are perfect! Pinned and bookmarked this!

  5. Rose

    Apples and cheese, just like the French would do! Or wait, was it grapes and cheese?:)
    However, it seems like cheese and fruit bond great combo!

  6. Laura Dembowski (@piesandplots)

    This soup sounds great! Love a sweet and savory recipe! We had our first frost too. Boo! I want summer back.

  7. Laura (Tutti Dolci)
