  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.
