First Fall Soup

Curried Cider Pork Stew

4 red gala apples, cubed

1 large butternut squash, peeled and cubed

1 onion, cubed

2 carrots, chopped into ringsimage

2 celery stalks, chopped

2 cups of apple juice

2 cups of chicken broth

2.5 lbs of pork carnitas, cut into chunks

2 Tbsp garam masala

salt & pepper to taste

Toss all of this into your crock pot in the morning and let ‘er rip all day. The longer, the better.

I enjoyed this yesterday. It’s crisply cool outside and the clear sun begged for a soup and a nice day. The light has changed into that fall light that has this clarity and appeal that makes you want to don some jeans and a long sleeve shirt and bask in the hot sun for the few days that it will feel like that. I love when the shade is cool and the sun is scorching and you feel this hint of breeze. It’s soup weather – bring it on!
