Food Monday ~ Celery & Apple Soup

This soup is suitable for any time of the year.  I like it with crusty French bread.

Celery & Apple Soup
Serves 6

1 medium Onion chopped
2 heads of Celery chopped
2 large Cooking Apples
2 Medium Potatoes chopped
2 pints Chicken Stock
1 teaspoon ground Coriander
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon Vermouth or Wine
Salt & Pepper
2 tablespoon Oil

Sauté onions and celery in oil for 8-10 minutes (do not brown). Add chopped potato and apple cut in chunks. Pour in stock, and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to the boil reduce heat and simmer for another 30 minutes transfer the soup to a food processor and blend until smooth. Return to the pan over a low heat and add the vermouth and Coriander & season to taste.

    Ooh Grannymar – this sounds lovely. Have always been a fan of the celery/apple combo, but never thought to try it in a soup. Will definitely give this one a go! YUM!

    Judy can you get cooking apples? they are very tart – sharp tasting. This side of the pond we use them for apple pie. Any American Apple Pie I ever tasted was made with sweet apples.

    My Mother always made what everyone said was the best apple pie in the World. She used green tart apples and they made a delicious pie.

    Now about the soup recipe you have today. I had a little trouble with it. Could it be because I mixed up and switched the quantities you recommended for the Chicken stock and the wine ?????? hic

    Happy birthday to you
    Happy birthday to you

    I love the idea of candles in the soup. 😆

    You have no idea how well timed this is . . it’s 3 days prior to payday, I have about $20 in my purse and wondering what on earth I can do for tea that won’t break the bank! Sorted . . . thanks GrannyMar but I’m not sharing my last bottle of bubbly with a soup recipe! It can be wine free!

    Baino, if I had known I might have come over to make it for you. 😉 Was it 40°C with you again today? we have 4°C.

    Dorothy this soup is easy and nourishing. Take things slowly and take care. Blogging friends are there around the clock.

    I love soups…they keep you feeling full longer than a lot of other things too.

    This is a fave…..and I grate some cheese on top too!

    Celery, apple, and cheese in liquid form with a nice piece of wholemeal bread.

    As for “culinary” apples…the french don’t have them either…. apple pie and wensleydale or similar cheese ….salivate.

    Magpie soups make an easy, tasty lunchtime meal in winter. Summertime I go for salads or fruit. They make for great variety.
