German Apple and Onion Soup

German style Apple & Onion Soup

It may sound like an odd combination of flavors but it actually is an amazing combination. This subtle sweet flavor of cooked onions really pulls flavor from the bitter bite of green apples.

I like serving this alongside some crusty baguette or a quiche. It's a great light broth soup which accompanies almost any meal.

Serves 4-6
Full time: 1 1/2 hours

You will need:

8 medium onions, cut in half and sliced thin
2 granny smith apples, corded and sliced thin
1 can frozen apple juice concentrate
6 cups chicken stock
2 cups apple juice
1/4 cup butter
1 tsp white pepper

Let us begin:

In a large pot sauté onions in butter until translucent

Add in frozen apple concentrate, white pepper, and apples. Allow juice to thaw and begin to boil

Add in stock and juice

Bring to a boil, then lower to simmer. Cover and cook for an hour
