In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, I’m finally able to cook and share this post with you. If there’s one thing I’ve learned in the past week, it’s that family really matters, and everything family-related is better when you’ve got the ones you love in your kitchen, sharing warm food made with care and good feelings.
My pea soup is made with mostly fresh ingredients, minus the choice of bacon. I used bacon to cook my onions with to give this soup some extra flavor. The green apple was used to give it a bite of fruitiness without making it terribly sweet. The combination may sound crazy, but as we watched the cleanup of the hurricane, the people I care about most were enjoying this wonderful original recipe with me. I hope you like this unique flavor combination, too.
