“A” is for apple and perfect marks—apples are perfect fruits for caramelizing alongside onions. Coincidence? I think not. If you want to try a lighter onion soup than the traditional French variety, this one will thrill your tastebuds.
If you want traditional French onion soup with a twist, cover the crisped bread on your Apple Onion Soup with Thyme with this Canadian cheese named best in the world.
