Как приготовить вкусный суп

Soup (from the French soupe) is a liquid dish (usually the first one), common in many countries. A distinctive feature of soup is, first of all, the fact that the soup includes at least 50% of the liquid (sometimes it is said that the rule "in the soup should be half a liquid" is used); secondly (for hot soups) - the soup is prepared by cooking, in the vast majority of cases - in water.

Soup, as a dish in its present understanding, was formed no more than 400-500 years ago, with the appearance of strong, non-oxidizable and chemically neutral dishes, allowing to carry out the cooking process. At the same time, it should be noted that in the East (Ancient China and neighboring regions) soups arose earlier, approximately 100 years before our era and again - in connection with the earlier occurrence of suitable dishes. This does not mean that earlier people did not use cooking - this method of cooking arose with the appearance of clay and stone dishes (VV Pokhlebkin calls the latter the most suitable for making soups [4]). However, soup should be distinguished as a dish, where its constituents are inseparable parts that create a general taste, a common composition and simply cooked products or a mixture thereof, where cooking is only intended to heat the product. The resulting broth at the same time, at least in primitive times, was not used.

With the advent of dishes, acquaintance with faience and porcelain and cutlery soup began to spread first in southern Europe in the XV-XVI centuries, and widely spread only to the XVII-XVIII century. Of course, the methods of cooking, the recipe for soups were formed earlier.

When housewives cook broth for soup, most often they wait for boiling, and then remove the foam. The formed foam is a coagulated protein. It appears when the meat is put in cold water and heated. Thus proteins and mineral salts pass into water. Broth is useful, so do not rush to remove the foam.
