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.
As discussed earlier soups play a very major role in medicine especially in traditional Asian and African settings. The reason why the soups are held with such importance is because the herbs or medicine that are used to treat the patient are usually very bitter thus the need to neutralize them with simple soups to sweeten the taste. In the modern medical setting people are also advised to take soups with special ingredients so that they can recover fast. For people who have mouth conditions the very old people who cannot chew or young children who have not developed any teeth it is advisable to prepare simple soups for them because they are equally as good as solid food if well balance in nutrition. It is not everybody that has the idea or knowledge on how to prepare soups. If you are such a person you can buy recipe magazines watch cooking programs on the television or visit the internet for easy recipes on how to prepare simple soups. Soups are usually delicious especially in the morning because if you happen to take well balanced simple soups you can be able to spend the whole day without taking any solid foods. This is especially healthy for people on diet.
