It's a chilly night and you want something to warm you up, right? Well, here's a spin on traditional French Onion Soup that we think you will love. Adding a diced Granny Smith Apple, our handcrafted garlic salt and a touch of brown sugar creates an unforgettable combination. Enjoy!

Ingredients
1 T. olive oil
3 medium white onions
1 Granny Smith apple (preferably organic)
1 T. brown sugar
1 T. flour
1/2 tsp. Richard’s Famous Garlic Salt
1 carton organic, low salt chicken broth -or- beef broth for a darker soup
1 slice toasted French bread
1 slice of swiss cheese

Directions
In a saucepan place 1 T. olive oil. Peel and thinly slice 3 medium onions. Peel and chop into small cubes 1 Granny Smith apple. Place saucepan over medium-high heat and add onions and apple. Stir. After a few minutes, lower the heat to medium and stir to prevent onions from burning. After 5 minutes, turn heat to low as onions become transparent and golden, and apples become soft. Cook for 5 more minutes. Add 1 T. brown sugar and cook 1 minute until sugar is melted. Add 1 T. flour and 1/2 tsp. Richard's Famous Garlic Salt; stir well, and cook for 1 minute. Add 1 carton of non-MSG, low salt chicken broth and stir well.  Cook over medium-low heat for about 10-15 minutes. Ladle hot soup into oven-proof crocks or bowls, top with a slice of toasted French bread and a slice of Swiss cheese. Place under broiler until cheese is melted and bubbly. Carefully remove from oven, let soup cool slightly, and serve. Mmmm.
