Unlike many of the French Onion Soup recipes on SparkRecipes. com, the nutrition values listed for this one include the bread and cheese toppings. Lower in fat and sodium than any pre-packaged version of this all-time favorite, this French Onion Soup wll rival any you get in a restaurant when it comes to taste. The key to a successful soup is to cook the onons slowly, consistenly reducing the cooking temperature.

Incredible! 5.0/5

This version takes it's flavor from the fruit and spices and does not contain nuts. A much smaller quantity of dark brown sugar replace the cups of refined white sugar in traditional recipes, making this version lighter, fruitier and lower in calories. I put a pint or so in the fridge to serve with a holiday meal and process the remaining relish in half-pint canning jars, using the water bath method. Total yield is about 6 half-pints or about 48 individual servings.

Our family gatherings were never complete without a Waldorf Salad loaded with apples, nuts and a sweetened mayonnaise dressing. This is my "healthy makeover" version. It looks nothing like Grandmother's version, but it captures the flavors in a delightfully lighter combination.
