Creamy Smoked Turkey and Apple Soup

2 T butter
1 large onion, diced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
2 celery stalks, diced
2 tart apples, cored and diced
5 cups chicken broth
2 medium carrots, quartered lengthwise and thinly sliced
2 cups fresh or frozen corn (we used smoked corn)
2 t dijon mustard
3 cups diced smoked turkey (we used leftovers of a maple brined turkey, which we smoked in applewood)
1/4 cup heavy cream
salt and pepper to taste

Saute onion, garlic, celery and apple in butter and cook for 5-7 minutes, or until tender. Add broth and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook for 20 minutes.

Puree apple-broth mixture in batches in a blender, or use an immersion blender to puree until smooth.

Return mixture to pot. Add carrots.  Bring broth to a simmer and cook 10 minutes, or until just tender. Add corn, turkey, cream, mustard and cook until heated through.

Serve with a nice green salad and a loaf of crusty bread.

Does Meat and fruit mix well for soup, In this case apple and chicken.

It's absolutely delicious together. And the pureed apple gives the soup quite a bit of body.

Try it, you'll like it!
