In a large stock pot cook 1 lb sausage (link or ground; any flavor) in 2 TAB Olive Oil.
Add chopped veggies:
- 1 onion
- 1 cup carrots
- 3-4 stalks celery
Continue cooking over medium high heat 5-7 minutes or until onion is tender. Add 1 bay leaf, 1 teas thyme. and 1/4 teas allspice.
Next add 2 quarts of Apple Cider.
Note: If you want to stretch the cider and have a more mild flavor you can do 1 quart apple cider and 1 quart chicken broth
Add cored and chopped apples. We prefer to use a hard red apple like Jazz, McIntosh, or Gala.
Add 5 oz Craisin and cook over medium-high heat for an additional 10 minute to blend flavor thoroughly.
This soup has the most AMAZING flavor! The mix of sausage and apples is the perfect fall flavor that will satisfy everyone in your family!
