Re: I Might Buy A Soup Maker!
A soup maker?
lols just lols
How can you possibly make a soup with any proper flavour with an electric machine?
The "heart" of any soup, the core taste and mix of flavours, comes from the initial frying of core ingredients in a pan with oil. That includes frying onions to get the caramelisation, frying potatoes (which have already been boiled), plus other veg that's going in like leeks etc.
This is a similar mentality to people who consider buying a an electric bread making machine. A machine that will fast track some flour, water and yeast through a 1-2 hr cycle to produce a tiny loaf that is invariably polished off the same day. What makes people have this penchant for silly electric devices?
Don't you want to "connect" with the ingredients in your food? To handle them, prepare them, enjoy their aromas?
Soup is probably THE most basic and easy meal for anyone to make. Just buy yourself a jug blender if you don't already have one. It's a device than has a plethora of uses, including soups, fruit juices, healthy anti-flu remedies, tomato sauces like passatas, milk shakes, smoothies and tons more.
