Happy Weekend everyone..
Just posting a little idea for you soup lovers..
I made these a couple of weeks ago in my shop to sell at the Art in the Park sale and they went over very well..
I have made them for years and love having them on hand all through the season when I make soup so often..
They are herb soup bags..
You gather your herbs together and put them in a cheesecloth and tie each one up with twine..
Then drop one or two in your soup during the last hour of simmering time..
I find one is enough for us..
I suppose it depends on how big your soup is , eh?
The first pic above is from one of my sweet readers, Cheryl..
She made the Bacon Lentil Soup that I posted about and sent me a picture of her soup..
Looks great, eh? And of course, I love the bowl...
I posted the recipe HERE.. on the Soup Debate...
You can mix and match the herbs to suit your soups..
Tomato beef would probably be better with oregano while chicken loves summer savory and such..
Anyway, here is the recipe..
To each piece of cheesecloth add a Tablespoon of Lovage, and 1 tsp. each of Rosemary, Savory and Marjoram. Also, add 1 bay leaf..
In some you could put Oregano, Chives and Thyme.. I would always add Lovage if I had it as it has the lovely celery taste..
You can experiment with this and find the mixture you like the best..
Also, this is a wonderful gift for the cook on your Christmas list or gift pantry..
I used old mason jars that I had a added a piece of dried Lovage inside.. Then I made tags from old recipe cards and glued a bay leaf on with a glue stick..
The instructions are on the other side of the card which I tied on with twine...
Just an idea.. smile..
Thank you to everyone who has been praying for my Vertigo as I am much better and back in our water bed.. Thank the Lord...
Have a blessed weekend and thanks so much for your visits and kind words..
You guys are great..
