Real Cooking

Did You Know?
Homemade soup, stock or broth can be made from bones and trimmings of meat and vegetables, and costs almost nothing. With some little time devoted to prepare ingredients for cooking, soup will cook itself while other preparations are going on. It can be made at any time and just boiled up when required.

Soup will give the great amount of nourishment with the least trouble to the digestive organs and it is a valuable aid for weakly and delicate constitutions, for the young and the aged, and it is appreciated invaluable healthy tonic for the busy workers. There is no better food to put digestive organs in a proper state to do hard work of digestion. A little soup prepares the stomach for the more solid food to follow.

It is quite a mistake to suppose that a rich, heavy soup is necessary, and that a large quantity must be taken. In either case, the effect would be to take away the appetite, instead of which it is to stimulate and encourage the appetite that the soup should be given.
