Introduction: Cobweb Apple Soup

This is a simple and quick recipe for apple soup with cinnamon. It can be served both hot and cold. Perfect for cold autumn days, and with a little creativity, also super fun for Halloween. The color is a nice bright orange. Please note this is not very sweet, so if you have a sweet tooth, you might want to increase the amount of sugar.

Step 1: Ingredients

What you need (4 small portions):

  • 4 apples (not pictured)
  • 4 dl / 1.7 cups water
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

For decorating:

  • 4 tablespoons quark, vanilla flavor (can substitute with yoghurt or custard)

Step 2: Cooking

Peel your apples and cut them into pieces. I was fortunate to have a bag ready in the freezer (this is great idea if you happen to get a bunch more apples than you need at one time - but frozen apples are best suited for cooking, not eating raw). Add apples to a pot along with the water, lemon juice, sugar and cinnamon. Cook for a few minutes until apples are soft. Test softness as you go along, this will vary.

Step 3: Blending - Serving

Add contents from the pot to a blender. I used a hand blender and suitable mug that came with the blender. Blend until smooth. If you plan on serving the dish cold, now would be the time to let it cool. Then add to serving bowls.

Add the quark to a decorating bag or decorating pen, and use this to form a cobweb pattern on top. If it's not Halloween, then mix it up! Done!

As always, I would love to hear what you guys think, and if you would make any changes.

Sunday is my soup-day. I'm trying to make a different soup every Sunday for the next year(just started with that, so now it is still easy). Guess this is what I will serve next time.

Well, this will only be the fifth soup, so before you will see anything of this we're at least 47 weeks from now.

Awesome! I would love to hear what you think if you make it. And yes, it is very similar to apple sauce, no doubt.

Looks good!

I'm glad to see that cobwebs are not actually included in the ingredient list! Although that would be interesting...

What in the world is quark??

author
xGrape (author)jmill112014-10-10

While quark can be both an elementary particle AND a manufacturer of computer software, the quark you are looking for in this recipe is the dairy product :) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quark_(dairy_product)

I don't know how common this is the US, which is why I also listed some great alternatives.
