Apple & Celery Soup Recipe
1 small head of fresh celery
2 large cooking apples
1 oz butter
60 fl stock
2 medium onions, peeled and diced
1 salt and milled pepper
1 milk to finish
1 chopped parsley and browned flaked, almonds to garnish
1 tsp soft brown sugar
In a large saucepan sweat off the diced onion in the butter. Wash,
trim and dice the celery, add to the onion and continue on a low
heat. Remove and bruises from the apples and grate them into your
pan, discarding the core. Cook for a further 10 minutes before adding
the stock, seasoning and sugar ~ beware too much salt if you are
using a stock cube. Bring to the boil, then simmer, lid on, for 30
minutes - don't over cook or the celery flavour becomes jaded and the
colours dull. Allow to cool a little before liquidising thoroughly.
Pass through a large mesh sieve to ensure there are no stringy
threads of celery remaining. Check seasoning and consistency, adding
a little milk if needed. Serve in warmed bowls, sprinkled with
parsley and the browned almond flakes.
