  2. Add the onions and sauté for about 55 minutes until caramelized and become golden in color, stirring occasionally, depending on the pan and the flame. Reduce the heat to medium-low halfway through to prevent them from burning.

  4. When the onions are ready add the apples and cook for 2 to 3 minutes.

  5. Add the apple cider to deglaze the pan, scraping up any brown bits on the bottom of the pan.

  6. Increase heat and bring to a boil, cook for about 5 minutes until the cider reduces.

  7. Add the garlic and vegetable broth. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer gently for 30 minutes. Add cream and simmer low for 10 minutes.

  8. Puree in a blender in batches or using an immersion blender. Adjust seasoning with salt and white pepper.
