Directions

  1. Add olive oil to a large Dutch oven or stock pot over medium-high heat. Sprinkle onion, garlic and celery with salt and cook until fragrant, about 10 minutes. Add apple and cook 5-10 minutes more, until brown and soft.
  2. Pour broth into pot, then add sweet potatoes. Bring to a boil then reduce to medium-low, simmering until sweet potatoes are softened, 20 minutes. Remove from heat and cool 15 minutes.
  3. Transfer soup to blender in batches, never filling more than halfway. Remove center blender cap and cover with a dish towel, blending until smooth and allowing steam to vent every few seconds.
  4. Transfer soup back to pot, gradually stirring in heavy cream and ginger and simmering for 5 minutes. Serve warm, garnished with bacon crumbles and sage. For extra flavor, reserve fat when cooking bacon and use fat in place of olive oil
