It may not be possible to keep fresh soup stock handy so use the best quality packaged stocks possible as a back up. Food Processor: Some soups and stews require the power of a great food processor. We ve heard from many die hard soup aficionados that they enjoy the dicing chopping and mincing with their chef knife. However there are times that a powerful food processor will cut your prep time and provide all the power work needed. Be sure to select one with reasonable volume capacity and the power to chop anything you ll need. We do not recommend a food processor for creaming your soups only prepping ingredients. Hot liquid will tend to leak out beneath the blade and the capacity of the processor is typically not sufficient for larger recipes requiring multiple batches. Soup Tureen: It would be a shame to create masterpiece soups and neglectfully serve them in ordinary serving bowls or pots. There s an elegance to serving your soup in a high quality soup tureen.

(2) Stir in 1 teaspoon of vinegar and 1 teaspoon of brown sugar for each quart of liquid. To Thicken Soup... The best method of thickening most soups and stews is to remove some of the cooked vegetables puree them in a blender and return the pureed mixture to the soup. (Do not fill the blender more than one-third full with hot vegetables to prevent getting burned from splashes of hot puree.) In the event that the soup is short on vegetables or there are none in the soup try one of the following thickening techniques: Make a paste of all-purpose flour mixed with twice as much cold broth or water. The ratio of flour to liquid is 1-1/2 teaspoons of flour to 1 tablespoon of liquid for every 1 cup of soup. Slowly stir the paste into simmering soup and continue to simmer for 5 to 10 minutes.
