This is a unique, refreshing fall farm soup. The celery root mimics the apples, the potato adds body, and the candied pecans add texture and a sweet nutty flavor, with a little added heat from the hot sauce. At Lemaire, we make our own fermented hot sauce, which is easy but the process takes a few months, so I’ll spare you that recipe here and just recommend that you use your favorite label. As for the candied pecans, you can also just purchase your favorite brand, but if you have a home fryer, this recipe is really easy and really great, and I recommend you make them yourself.
