    Pleasantly surprising

    I never buy any mixes or starters for anything I cook. However my daughter gave me this one and I was surprised at how good it was and a time saver! I used apple sausage with honey crisp apples however I didn’t add spinach substituting turnip greens instead and it was delicious! I’m purchasing more for myself and gifts for friends.

    Apple Sausage and Bean Soup

    Posted by Melissa McDowell on Dec 24th 2022

    I got this soup to try because my teenage grandson just had surgery and has to be careful what he eats. He likes chicken sausage but has never been a bean fan, or even a soup fan. I have to go low salt and gluten free, and neither of us can eat dairy. So it’s amazing to find something we both can have, especially that we both like! We finished the first batch yesterday. I went back and bought three more, and am making it again tomorrow. It’s fresh and tasty, and not heavily processed. I love that it has fresh apples in the recipe.
