If you have larger hands we suggest trying a 10-inch blade or possibly a 12-inch blade. Consider a knife with a slight curve to the blade this allows for easier chopping. A great quality knife is designed to "catch an edge" making your cutting safer and easier and frankly more enjoyable. If you re going to invest in quality cutlery we also suggest an electric knife sharpener that controls the sharpening angle (a perfect 20 degrees). Fresh Ingredients: Fresh. Fresh. Fresh. Nothing can replace the complex and wonderful flavors of fresh vegetables meats herbs and spices. Even ingredients such as olive oil offer the best flavor when freshest. Soup aficionados who make the effort to use fresh home made stocks are an inspiration to us all. In general your kitchen should keep a collection of fresh staple ingredients such as onions celery and carrots fresh peppercorns garlic and parsley.
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.

An immersion blender will make soup thickening creamed soups and puree s a snap. Its highly convenient and is less messy to clean up though the upright blender wins hands down for overall performance. We love the immersion blender because it minimizes messes and reduces the handling of hot soup. We highly recommend an immersion blender with variable speeds powerful motor stainless steel blending attachments and of course a splash guard.
