Hearty mushroom soup with apple and chive sour cream

Dear Stuttgart and other people in the south. While you're 18 degrees and probably just digging for the ballerinas in the closet, we'll have 18 inches of snow in the north and go through our cellars for the sledges.

You might think that's kind of unfair - you have the young spring and we again (felt) Christmas. But that's not so bad with the cold and the snow. Because we in the north have once again the great opportunity to let ourselves be really freeze-dried and then to have a hot, rustic soup. And we will have spring next week, too.

Mettwurst, bacon or smoked tofu give this mushroom soup a great, hearty note. The apple chive sour cream stirred together in 2 minutes provides the fruity fresh counterweight. A pumpernickel slice with butter ... I would say: We'll go in and do not really miss the ballerinas.
