"Great Thanksgiving or Christmas starter soup. Make it your own by adding a dash of nutmeg or other seasonal spice."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Extremely tasty, only reason it wasn't a five star was I found there was a little too much lemon flavor
I enjoyed this soup, but I had a difficult time getting it to a soup-consistency and not having little carrot bits in it. I used a braeburn apple, which may not have been tart enough. I used vegetable stock to keep it vegetarian, and this worked fine. Since some reviews said there was too much lemon, I mixed lemon juice with cranberry, and this worked well. Also added some cinnamon!
I love this soup! For those that said you couldn't taste the apple I wonder which type of apples were used? I usually opt for tart green apples and find the flavour to be just present, but not overpowering. I use slightly less broth (4 cups) to avoid having an overly watery soup and I always leave out the cream entirely - the soup is so yummy, there's simply no need for it. I've made this soup a few times now, and the only changes I made aside from those mentioned above is adding three small-medium carrots, if they're on hand, and putting goat cheese on top before eating.
A great, hearty soup, but next time I would opt to omit the lemon: it was just a bit overpowering.
Fantastic Fall soup! Rather than garnishing with goat cheese, parsley is a nice alternative. To really spice it up, add cinnamon!
Everyone in my family LOVED this, even my 8 month old. I used 3 apples, cored and sliced with a corer before baking, then they peeled easily.
Yum! I changed a few things, mainly due to ingredients I didn't have on hand. I had no chicken stock or cream, so I used water and added 1 Tbsp of soy sauce to each cup of liquid (an allrecipes ingredient substitution suggestion). I used a few tablespoons of lemon juice and doubled the apple. I served it in Taste of Home's Bread Bowls (recipe available on allrecipes). We really enjoyed it. Thank you so much for sharing!
This is a great soup to serve in the autumn time, it warms you right up! I love how simple it is, and it has lots of great vitamins and nutrients. If the lemon is too much, try a small lemon or perhaps less juice. The apple is awsome.
