Autumn Soup Recipecook the sausage

In a large stock pot heat 2 tablespoons olive oil and cook 1 pound of sausage until it is cooked through – about 5-7 minutes. You can cut up link sausage or break apart ground sausage like we usually do.
chop your veggies

While it is cooking chop up the onion, carrots, and celery into bit size pieces. After the sausage is cooked through, add the vegetables to the fall soup.

  • 1 onion
  • 1 cup carrots
  • 3-4 stalks celery

saute until veggies are tender

Continue cooking over medium high heat 5-7 minutes or until onion is tender. Now, add the seasonsing:

  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon  thyme
  • 1/4 teas allspice
    time to add the apple goodness to your soup

Continue cooking over medium heat as you pour in the 2 quarts of Apple Cider. If you can’t find any apple cider, apple juice will work too, it just doesn’t have quite as deep of a flavor.

Note: If you want to stretch the cider (or if you are trying to cut down on sugar) you can use 1/2  apple cider and half chicken broth; it will give you a slightly more mild flavor.

Now core and chop 3-4 apples. We prefer to use a hard apples like Red apples,  Jazz apples, McIntosh apples, or Gala apples. Many times we just use whatever apple we picked at the farm when we went apple picking!
Optional: add craisins (interesting if you have leftovers watch as the craisins become cranberries again)As your mixture continues to cook until the apples are slightly softened, but not mushy, you will add 5 ounces of craisins (dried cranberries) and cook over medium-high heat for an additional 10 minutes to blend flavor thoroughly.

NOTE: The cranberries will start to rehydrate when cooking in all the juices.
