Tomato Dill Soup and Biscuits with 101.7 The One’s Julie B


Be sure to go to 1017 The One’s website to enter the contest, http://1017theone.ca/contests/2017/01/its-soup-month-julie-b-makes-soup-with-anne-mann/, to win one of my cookbooks, Anne’s Favourite’s. I had lot’s of fun making Tomato Dill soup with the “Soup Queen”, Julie B!  Thank you to Kelly Thompson for doing such a wonderful job of editing the video to give you a quick lesson on making soup and stock.

Preparing for the video and making the soup reinforced what I already know – it is so easy to make your own soup and such a worthwhile investment of time for such a nutritious and delicious outcome.

Chicken Stock  annes-chicken-stock Click here for pdf version

Even if you are a novice I highly recommend you try making your own stock and freezing it in quantities that you will use. I never buy chicken bones because I freeze bits and pieces from day to day cooking until I have a couple of pounds which is enough to make stock. If you cook a whole chicken just throw the neck into a freezer bag for stock and of course the carcass works also if you are cutting the meat off the bones. I always keep a watch for chicken breasts with the skin and bone and buy them. I debone and skin them keeping the unused portion for soup. This makes a really rich stock since I am no pro at deboning so lots of meat is left attached! Other times I buy whole chicken wings and keep the cut off tips for stock. Some places you can even buy the backs and necks which work well. When drumsticks are on sale you can use a few of those. You can also buy a whole roasted chicken for dinner and save the carcass from that for soup… so no excuse for not trying some home made chicken stock.
