A great winter favorite that has nice tender veggies and a wonderful warm and hearty soup. The flavor is better if it cooks all day or night.

  • Heat olive oil in a slow cooker on High. Add onion, green onions, and garlic; cook and stir in the open cooker until tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in apple and butter. Add sausage; cook and stir for 5 minutes.

  • Pour chicken stock and white cooking wine into the slow cooker. Cook until heated through, about 20 minutes. Stir in potatoes; cook, covered, on Low for 20 minutes.
