Ingredients:

  1. Heat oven to 400° F.
  2. Prick the potatoes with a fork, place on a baking sheet, and roast until tender, 40 to 45 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onion, celery, and apple and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, 10 to 12 minutes.
  4. Halve the potatoes and add to the saucepan. Add 6 cups water, 2 teaspoons salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Cook until heated through, 8 to 10 minutes.
  5. Puree the soup in the saucepan using a handheld immersion blender. Add water, if necessary, to reach the desired consistency.
