Hot Apple Soup

Filed under: Fruits - Apples, Soups & Stews, Special Diets - Fat-Free, Vegetarian.

Description:
This hot soup is delicious and warming on a cool autumn day! Developed initially by former innkeeper Margaret Perry, I have made some minor adjustments to the recipe. Serve it in wide, shallow soup bowls as a first course before a hearty breakfast.

Ingredients:
1 lb. apples, peeled, cored and sliced: Note - I like to use a mix of locally-grown sweet and tart apples, as the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia is known for its apple harvest!
1 1/2 cups apple cider
1 1/2 cups water
1 tsp. lemon rind
2 tsp. lemon juice
1/3 cup sugar (approximately I usually use less if I have sweeter apples)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
Vanilla yogurt for garnish

Directions:
Place all ingredients except yogurt in saucepan and simmer until the apples are mushy. Puree in blender at low speed. Adjust seasoning if necessary. Serve hot.
Garnish with a dollop of vanilla yogurt and a sprinkle of nutmeg.
