We are fans of stainless steel for practical cooking and silver pewter ceramic and other high quality weighted ladles for serving. Decorative handles shapes sizes a variety of exotic decorative metals and textures make choosing your soup ladles an artistic decision that will offer your table the perfect finishing touch. Spices: Often a soup aficionado s desire to tackle a new and exotic recipe may be cut short by the list of rare hard to find spices that it requires. The true soup chef must clear a shelf in their spice cabinet (freezing infrequently used spices will help lengthen their life) and expand on their spice inventories. The soup kitchen s spice rack should never limit ones ability to tackle a new and exotic recipe. Of course we are talking about real tasty good-quality Soups.

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.
