I am in a soup making frenzy these days fueled by the crisp air and autumn light. We make a large pot early in the morning, which lasts a couple of days. Squash and leek soup or lentils with root vegetables are some of our weekly staples, but there others we love and new ones to experiment with.
Living in a subtropical climate, it is not often we get to open all of our windows to let fresh, crisp air in. When it finally happens, my outlook completely changes. I can feel it. And then I want to cook soup, lots of it.
This weekend I cooked a lady apple, leek, and sunchoke cream that we ate with steamed clams. I will share this soon.
In the meantime, I leave you with lady apples. They exemplify what I love about this season.
