Ingredients

Directions

  • Set aside about 1/2 cup of the onions to use later as a garnish. Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat. Stir in the onion, and cook until the onion has softened and turned translucent but not browned, about 10 minutes. Pour in the chicken broth, beef consomme, apple juice concentrate, apple juice, and applejack liquor. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat and season with the white pepper. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer 1 hour.

  • To serve, place a pinch of the reserved raw onions in the bottom of a soup bowl. Ladle the soup into the bowls, and float a few slices of apple on top to serve.

I made the non-alcohol version as I didnt have any of it on hand and the soup was amazing. It is a light version of French Onion. On many levels it was more enjoyable. I stuck with tradition and put bread on the bottom instead of apples--Very good! I do recommend pureeing the soup for more of an even consistency as there are a lot of onions. Enjoy!

The only way this could be better is if I baked it in French Onion Soup dishes with swiss cheese on top. Very delicous!

I made this soup for Christmas Eve dinner for 9. I made it exactly as called for except when tasting I found that it needed a tiny bit more apple so I put a little more apfelkorn in. I strained the soup into tea glasses for a "cappuccino" as a between course in a 5-course meal. This soup was the hit of my dinner! Next time I would make a crouton to float in it. That's all. Make it!! Your friends and family will love it and ask for more.

I also made a non-alcohol version. I did brown the onions though. Yum!
