This is not a decorative external differences but the requirements dictated by the taste and the appointment of soup. 3. The addition of products to the soup should be done in a certain order so that none of the components are not digested and that the whole soup is not boiling too long and keep up to a time when cooked all of its components. To do this the cook should know and remember the cooking time of each product and each component. 4. Soup should be always salted in the end of cooking but not too late at a time when the major products in it just cooked but not yet digested and able to absorb the salt evenly. If the soup is salted too early even when the products are hard then it is cooked long and becomes too salty as the salt mostly remains in the liquid and if salted too late then it becomes salty (liquid) and tasteless (thick).
A roux of butter and flour may also be used as a thickener. The longer the roux is cooked the darker and more flavorful it becomes. Be careful not to scorch the roux or it will give the soup an unpleasant burned taste. Cream is another alternative to not only thicken but add a luxurious richness to soups. A cornstarch slurry of 1 part cornstarch to 2 parts liquid will also thicken soup; do not boil or the solution will break down. Freezing and Reheating Soup... Most soups freeze beautifully. Consider preparing large batches of soup so that there will be extra to freeze and serve at a later date. Chill soup in the refrigerator and skim off any fat that rises to the surface before freezing. Freezing cream-based soups may cause separation. If the soup does separate while reheating whisk vigorously with a wire whisk or try blending it in a blender for a few minutes to smooth it out. Reheat frozen soups in the microwave or thaw at room temperature and heat in a heavy saucepan over low heat on the stovetop.
