I'm wanting to dive into making my first soup. I'm reaching out to ya'll as you're food makers and food enjoyers. Looking for tips and favorite recipes from trusted folks rather than just doing a Google search. Thanks!
I love a good soup homemade, especially on chilly, gray days (helllllo, summer in San Francisco!)
Good ingredients are key. For soup, the easiest one to overlook is, paradoxically, all that liquid. Good stock will make all the difference. If you aren't in the habit of making your own stock, fear not. Bi-Rite sells great, high quality stock back in the freezer section. I bet Avedano's and Fatted Calf do as well. I'd avoid the boxes or cans of store-bought stock if at all possible, with the one exception being Better Than Bouillon, which actually does make a really nice concentrate that you mix with water to make stock. If your only option is a can of Swanson's chicken stock, you're honestly better off just using water.
