During the colder times of the year I love to have a pot of homemade soup simmering on the back of the stove with the scent of comfort and a feel of home wafting through the house, welcoming family and friends.
Soul-warming soup is the perfect autumn or winter delight.
How do I make one of my favorite comfort foods of winter – soup?
The first step in creating outstanding soup from scratch is to make a delicious, wholesome base for your soup — by creating homemade broth.
I usually have broth on hand because when I make a large batch I freeze the broth in quart-sized mason jars. I take a jar or more of broth out of the freezer the day before I need it and defrost it in the fridge.
Why do I go through the trouble of making broth myself?
Broth, especially bone broth, has countless health benefits. And there is nothing as nutritious and nurturing to our soul as the food we create with thought, care, and love, using ingredients we hand-pick for goodness, quality, and safety.
Plus, and perhaps most importantly, I really want to know what is in my food.
