The spring of winter has begun

With the days getting shorter and the nights getting longer, you know that autumn has arrived. The temperature drops, even in the beautiful Puglia. But fortunately Puglia is not only beautiful in spring and summer, but also in autumn and winter.

Torre Guaceto in winter

The spring of winter is a beautiful season to be out in the open. How about a walk along the sea with family or friends? And then, after coming home from your walk, enjoying a cup of hot soup while sitting on the couch with the wood stove on? Yes, autumn is really a beautiful season, perhaps the most beautiful of the four seasons 😉

The colors we associate with autumn are deep gold, orange and dark red. Orange like carrot and sweet potato soup*, full of flavors with seasonal products.

If you are our guest during these months, Jetty will be happy to prepare this soup for you. But for those who want to make it at home here is the recipe.


  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 1/2 tablespoon of curry powder
  • 250 grams of carrots, peeled and cut into pieces
  • 250 grams of sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into pieces
  • 750 ml chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 sweet, peeled and chopped apple
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • black pepper


  • In a pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the onionpieces and cook, stirring frequently, until they are soft and translucent, about 10 minutes. Do not brown. Add the curry powder and cook another minute.
  • Add all other ingredients and bring to a boil. Then lower the heat and cook slowly for about 20 minutes, until the potatoes and carrots are cooked.
  • Blend the soup with an immersion blender until it is smooth and creamy.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper if necessary.
