Write a review
  1. 4 large onions, peeled and chopped
  2. 1 cup of butter
  3. 1 tablespoon of fresh ginger, grated
  4. ¼ cup of curry powder
  5. 1 tablespoon of cinnamon
  6. 12 tart apples, chopped
  7. 6 quarts chicken stock
  8. 4 cans of coconut milk
  9. Sea salt and pepper to taste
  1. Sauté onions in butter.
  2. Add ginger & cinnamon. Cook slightly to toast.
  3. Add apples and chicken stock and simmer until apples are soft. (Option: reserve 1 cup of apple pieces to add later to soup.)
  4. Puree soup in blender or food mill. If you wish the recipe to be vegetarian, replace chicken stock with vegetable stock. If you are vegan, you may swap out both meat stock and butter and the recipe should still be delicious.
  5. Season to taste.

Orchard Hopping

Written by Melissa Pasanen on . Posted in Taste of the Landscape

It’s apple season in Vermont! Celebrate the apple harvest with these upcoming events.

  • Shelburne Orchards honors the pollinating bees on Sunday, Sept. 13, with their second annual “Bee Here Now” event. Lectures, an observation hive on-site, art activities and a bee costume parade contest. Naturally, you can also pick the crunchy, sweet results of the bees’ hard work.
  • Burtt’s Apple Orchard in Cabot was started after Greg Burtt, now 30, wrote an orchard business plan in high school. Throughout fall, they fry up fresh cider doughnuts, press sweet cider and offer pick-your-own varieties, including prized heirlooms like St. Edmund’s Russet and Cox’s Orange Pippin.
  • For even more heirlooms, head to Scott Farm in Dummerston on Sunday, Oct. 11, for their annual Heirloom Apple Day where they offer wood-fired pizza, a hard cider tasting from Whetstone CiderWorks of Marlboro and the chance to sample some of their 90-plus apple varieties.
