More Apples!

If you still have a bag of apples sitting in your kitchen, it's time to make apple soup!  This is a very easy recipe that is simple, wholesome, and delicious. 

You will need:
-7-9 apples, any variety
-1 sweet onion
-2 tbs. canola oil
-1 cup milk/cream

Chop the onion into medium sized pieces and cook on medium low in a big pot with the canola oil.  Peel and slice the apples and add them to the pot.  Slowly add water to allow the onions and apples to steam and cook down.  Turn the heat to medium.  When the onions and apples are soft (about 30 minutes), remove from heat and pour into a blender.  Blend until liquified.  Return the mixture to the pot and heat on low.  Add milk, cinnamon and cloves.  Add more or less spice as you see fit...I only added about 1/2 tsp of cloves and 1 tsp of cinnamon to keep the flavor of the onions intact.

Serve with some crunchy bread and enjoy!

Combine with a 30 minute walk (pushing it!) and a 15 minute strength session...even if it's just alternating between push-ups and lunges.
