"This soup was great. I was looking for a way to use up extra apples from a trip to the orchard and this was a winner. The flavor was excellent. I found I didn't need to add the extra 2 1/2 cups of chicken broth after the puree process because I wanted it to be a little thicker. That is definitely up to the cook's preference. Would wholeheartedly recommend this soup."

Just a bit too sweet for my taste, but definitely good and different.
