Reminders in Preparing your Soup Recipes

 

The principal art in composing good rich soup is with the proper proportion of several ingredients that the flavor of one shall not predominate over another and that all the components of which it is composed, shall form an agreeable whole.

 

To accomplish this, care must be taken that the roots and herbs are perfectly well cleaned and that the water is proportioned to the quantity of meat and other ingredients.

Generally, a quart of water may be allowed to a pound of meat for soups, and half the quantity for gravies.

 

In making soups, gentle stewing or simmering is incomparably the best. It may be noted, that a really good soup can never be made but in a well-closed vessel, although, perhaps, greater goodness is obtained by an occasional exposure to the air.

 

Soups might take around one to six hours of preparation, and are much better prepared the day before they will be set on the table.

 

When the soup is cold, the fat may be much more easily and completely removed. When it is poured off, care must be taken not to disturb the settlings at the bottom of the vessel, which are so fine that they will escape through a sieve.
