Apple 'Cider' Soup

This soup was developed as a part of a bigger multiple course meal. It is very unique in that it can be compared to a hot cup of apple cider. However, the chicken broth, apples, and five-spice powder add an interesting twist to it. The idea behind this soup is to give the guest something warm and acidic that when consumed will refresh the palate readying their taste buds to the next wonderful course.

Apple Shopping Tip

When buying apples, they should be firm, free of bruises, and heavy for their size.

Apple Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
