Wine should be added at a ratio of no more than 1/4 cup of wine to 1 quart of soup. Beer is also a good addition to soups and stews. A good rule of thumb is 1 cup of beer to 3 cups of soup. Freeze the liquids drained from canned mushrooms or vegetables for later use in soups or stews. Since liquids boil at a lower temperature at high altitudes cooking time may need to be extended at altitudes above 2500 feet. Soups and stews should only simmer while cooking never brought to a hard boil. "Is it soup yet?" Naturally the best soups are made with a base of homemade broth and fresh ingredients but this method can be very time-consuming and labor intensive. If you like time spent in the kitchen preparing soup may be reduced by using canned or frozen broths and vegetables while still yielding an excellent product. Remember there are no really good quick soup recipes because any truly good soup needs time during preparation for flavor to fully develop. Always plan on providing enough time to prepare a really good soup or stew.

Cutlery: Every great soup cook must have at a minimum one high quality chef s knife and one excellent paring knife. Most on our team have 3-4 chef knives in their personal kitchens and swear they can t do without any of them. Having 2 quality paring knives should suffice. We prefer two chef knives Wustoff and Kershaw. These two knives are in the premium tier but not nearly the most expensive but just as high of performers. High quality knives will make your soup prep work much easier safer and enjoyable. We re often asked "what size of knife should my soup kitchen have?" We agree the choices can be perplexing but the answer is not exact. It depends on your hands. The best knife for you will fit your hand comfortably allowing for nimble work. If you have smaller hands you may find a 6-inch or 8-inch blade is perfect.
