How to cook a delicious soup quickly and tasty?

Как приготовить вкусный суп

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

Soup, as a dish in its current sense, developed no more than 400-500 years ago, with the advent of strong, non-oxidizable and chemically neutral dishes, allowing the cooking process. It should be noted that in the East (Ancient China and nearby regions) soups arose earlier, about 100 years before our era, and again, in connection with the earlier emergence of suitable dishes. This does not mean that people did not use cooking before - this method of cooking arose with the advent of clay and stone utensils (V. V. Pokhlebkin calls the latter the most suitable for cooking soups [4]). However, you should distinguish soup as a dish, where its components are inseparable parts that create a common taste, overall composition and simply boiled products or their mixture, where cooking was aimed only at the heat treatment of the product. The resulting broth at the same time, at least in primitive times, was not used.

With the advent of dishes, familiarity with earthenware and porcelain and cutlery, soup began to spread first in southern Europe in the 15th and 16th centuries, and became widespread only in the 17th and 18th centuries. Of course, cooking methods, recipes for soups were added earlier.

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