If you’re looking to find out the answer to the question how do you cook soup, you’ve come to the right place.
There are so many options, that it’s difficult to know exactly where to start, but here goes.
OK, this is the easy option. Buy your soup in a tub, or in a can or a packet, or one of those plastic jug type things. Most will be full of added salts, preservatives and for some, a not too shoddy dose of sugar either.
If his is all you want, feel free to go for it. It can be cheap and nutritious, or it could be cheap and absolutely awful. Make sure you check the ingredients and amounts before you decide which ones to buy.
Perhaps it was just in my house, but soup like Granny used to make was sensational. My old granny was a traditional cook, who knew how to cook soup well. Actually, very well.
Big Pan On The Stove
This is how I learned to make soup. Simpy boiling some bones (or not, depending if you use ready made stock or stock cubes. I often let it bubble over the pan, leading to lots of messy cooker tops to clean. I detested having to stir so often, and detested even more, the need for keeping a close eye on it for long periods of time.
This is where I fall nowadays. I love soupmakers. Using pre made stocks, or cubes and stock pots, we can made tasty soups in minutes, with none of the angst. Honestly, there is no better way to throw a bunch of ingredients in a pot and then come back to a ready made soup.
