Soups are one of those universally comforting foods, regardless of country or origin. Hearty, heart-warming broth, filled with an assortment of vegetables and meats, cross borders and boundaries.
Typically the strength and quality of a soup relies on the base stock from which it is made and this is often the most time consuming step of making soup or broth. Of course modern conveniences allow for wonderful time savers in the form of stock cubes and pre-packaged stock.
While not difficult to cook or make, the general making of soup does require care and attention to ensure that it’s ingredients are sufficiently cooked prior to stock being added and consistent stirring ensures that it’s contents do not stick to the bottom of the pan. This is where the electric soup makers are a great addition to any kitchen.
The convenience and simplicity of chucking all the required ingredients in to one pot and leaving it to make your soup ready from scratch in a matter of minutes allows you time to focus on other more important more demanding needs of the day.
