Creamy Apple Soup

A Short History:

  • Apples, one of the oldest cultivated fruits, have been a part of diets across the world due to their versatility, storage capability, and variety.
  • Soups have served as staple dishes in many cultures, evolving from simple broths to complex creations that incorporate seasonal ingredients like apples.
  • Creamy Apple Soup marries the concept of traditional fruit soups with modern culinary techniques, creating a dish that’s both innovative and deeply rooted in the bounty of the harvest.


  • Ancient Times: Early civilizations begin cultivating apples.
  • Middle Ages: Soups and broths become fundamental elements of European cuisine.
  • 20th Century: With the advent of modern appliances, soups become more diverse, including the introduction of fruit-based soups.
  • Today: Creamy Apple Soup exemplifies the modern trend of blending sweet and savory flavors in a single dish.

Tips for Making Creamy Apple Soup:

  • Choose Apples Wisely: Opt for apples with a balance of sweet and tart flavors, such as Honeycrisp or Gala, to add complexity to the soup.
  • Sautee for Flavor: Sautéing the apples, celery, and onions before simmering them in broth deepens the soup’s flavor profile.
  • Silky Smooth: Use a blender or food mill to achieve a smooth texture. For an extra silky soup, pass it through a fine sieve after blending.
  • Garnish Generously: The sautéed apple wedges not only add a decorative touch but also introduce a delightful contrast in texture and temperature.
