Why isn't soup as good as it used to be? Although, that sugar and salt content in canned soup gives it a competitive edge for taste. My mom made the best homemade soup and continues to make soup for the local soup kitchen.
You might ask why, and the answer is....it is SO nutrient dense...good for you body....and TASTES SO GOOD!! She feels it is better to give people good nutrition and make it with LOVE because everyone deserves good health.
The base is bone broth. (If you are Vegan or Vegetarian, then legume broth is an excellent choice). Don't buy the chicken or beef stock you find in the grocery store because a true, rich, mineral and protein loaded stock IS NOT LIQUID at room temperature. When you boil the bones, fat and cartilage down, you get a jelly like substance when it cools.
This is what I ended up with after I simmered then boiled the bones for 3 hours. This is what bone broth should look like when cooled. This makes me wonder what...
