I'm taking my kitchen paperless (at least as far as non-bound recipes go) so welcome to my cookbook in a blog!

Curried Apple Soup

Curried Apple Soup
From The Enchanted Broccoli Forest
Serves 4-6

STOCK

apple peels and cores
garlic skins, cleaned
onion skins, cleaned
2 cinnamon sticks
2 1/2 C apple juice
2 1/2 C water

Combine and boil gently about 45 minutes.  Remove from heat and let stand 1 hour.  Strain and discard solids.

SOUP

3 Tb butter
1/2 tsp fresh grated ginger root
2 med cloves garlic, minced

1 1/2 C onion, chopped
4 C heaping, apples, peeled, chopped (anything but Delicious)
1 tsp salt

juice from 1 lemon

SEASONING

3 Tb flour
1 tsp each: dry mustard, turmeric, ground cumin, ground coriander
1/4 tsp each: ground cloves, cayenne pepper

2 C mixed yogurt and sour cream (any proportion, one, or the other)

Make the stock.  Take out yogurt and sour cream and let come to room temperature.

In a heavy skillet, add butter, ginger, garlic, and a dash of salt.  Stir and cook over moderate heat a minute or so, then add onions.  Saute another 5 minutes, then add apples and salt, stirring well.  Add lemon juice, sprinkle Seasoning in, stir well.  Cover and cook 8-10 minutes over low heat, stirring occasionally.  turn off heat, and let rest about 10 minutes.  Heat the stock.

Puree stock and sauteed mixture together, bit-by-bit in a food processor or blender.  Make sure the result is very smooth.  Once back in a saucepan, whisk in yogurt/sour cream.  Don't cook the soup any more, only heat it over low right before serving time.

It's really good chilled too!
