A roux of butter and flour may also be used as a thickener. The longer the roux is cooked the darker and more flavorful it becomes. Be careful not to scorch the roux or it will give the soup an unpleasant burned taste. Cream is another alternative to not only thicken but add a luxurious richness to soups. A cornstarch slurry of 1 part cornstarch to 2 parts liquid will also thicken soup; do not boil or the solution will break down. Freezing and Reheating Soup... Most soups freeze beautifully. Consider preparing large batches of soup so that there will be extra to freeze and serve at a later date. Chill soup in the refrigerator and skim off any fat that rises to the surface before freezing. Freezing cream-based soups may cause separation. If the soup does separate while reheating whisk vigorously with a wire whisk or try blending it in a blender for a few minutes to smooth it out. Reheat frozen soups in the microwave or thaw at room temperature and heat in a heavy saucepan over low heat on the stovetop.
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.
