The Scoop on Soup

Soup Talk - Welcome Autumn with Warm & Delicious Soups and Stews

As the last warm evenings of Summer turn to the first crisp days of Fall we begin to settle in and enjoy the warmth of soups and stews as a Supper favorite. The beautiful color of the Fall foliage quickly becomes the threshold to colder days and warmer meals. Homemade soups are a traditional favorite and can be served as a side or an entrée, a quick meal or simmered all day to infuse maximum flavor.

The warmth and comfort of soup fills and satisfies the soul as well as the stomach. Whether you prefer the creaminess of tomato, the texture of a hearty meat or vegetable stew or the wonderful ethnic flavors in soups with Italian, Indian or Spanish origins you are sure to find an endless quantity of soups and stews that will entice the taste buds and welcome those cool Autumn evenings.

Traditional soups can be a warm reminder of childhood when Mom made sure we had a bowl of soup and toasted cheese sandwich before we set out for a day of play out in the cool weather. Soup can be served as a quick lunch with a sandwich or it can be an all day, simmering adventure. Add a loaf of fresh baked bread for the perfect accompaniment to a one-pot supper.

From the richness of the Northeast Seafood Corn Chowder or Minestrone to a Chicken and Sausage Gumbo or the spicy kick of a Southwestern Chicken Tortilla or Taco soup the variety of soup recipes is vast and plentiful. You don't have to be a master in the kitchen to experiment with wholesome ingredients and fantastic flavors to create an exciting new soup creation.

A bountiful Fall harvest lends the earthiness of squash, pumpkins, potatoes and other fresh vegetables which can be used to create many stew bases and thick, creamy soups. Add intensity with herbs and spices to further compliment the robust flavor of the vegetables.
