Spicy Sweet Potato-Apple Soup

Spicy Sweet Potato-Apple Soup

Three sweet potatoes sat alone on a shelf in my pantry. I couldn't remember what I bought them for, so I moved them to the kitchen counter to use them for dinner. At first, I was going to scrub them and bake them. They would have been a fine complement to the beef tenderloin that I roasted earlier in the afternoon. Then I considered slicing them into thin slivers and roasting them with a kiss of olive oil, sea salt and pepper. I was sold on that idea, but then I noticed the bowl of apples on my counter. I recalled buying fresh jalapeno peppers at the market earlier in the morning and then within minutes, I pulled out my six court stock pot and began peeling and chopping to create what would become this lush and silky soup.

This recipe contains butter, onions (yellow), olive oil, peppers (jalapeno), garlic, potatoes, apples (gala), chicken stock, cinnamon, bay leaves, salt (sea), black pepper, sugar (brown), parsley (fresh), sour cream
