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.
In this article we will explore what soup is good for and why along with considerations of different kinds of healthy soup recipes and the benefits of home brewing. The Trouble With Canned Soup When you consider all of the mass-produced over-processed packaged food you can find on supermarket shelves today it might seem like overkill to put a similar blame on canned soup. Surely soup is still good even when canned. Well although canned soup is hardly the worthless junk found in many plastic or metal containers it is still not as good for you as when made from home ingredients. The canning process and the excessive additives and preservatives used can sap much of what is great about soup out of its recipe and leave you with a relatively unhealthy brew. Home-Brewing Gathering the ingredients yourself and putting together your own soup recipes is certainly bound to be healthier than buying pre-made soup off the shelf and you will almost certainly find that it does not really take much more effort.

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.
