"We have many cold months in Idaho, and hearty soups served with hot rolls help warm us up," writes Tami Christman from her home in Soda Springs. "My mom got the recipe for this delicious soup—chock-full of kidney beans, apples and turkey sausage—at a country restaurant in Lima, Montana. Guests always ask for a copy."

"Pretty good. I kind of wished the apple and onion hadn't been quite so cooked, so they could've been tasted more."

"This is absolutely wonderful soup! I made a double batch of this & wish I would have quadrupled it. I did not double the sausage or apples, though & it was just right. Love it :)"
