In my Basic Foods class we are studying Combination Foods...Casseroles and Soups.
Last week we made a cream soup...to learn how to make a roux. This has to be one of my favorite labs...ever...
This week...we made our Clear Soup...starting with homemade Chicken Stock. I have shared this recipe before...
"Mrs. G...You want us to do what??"
But before too long, each lab group has their chicken half cut into about 4 pieces and simmering them for soup stock.
We strain our broth and chill it in the refrigerator overnight. The 2nd day I can show them how to remove the fat that has solidified on the top.
We cut the chicken meat into bite size pieces...and add it, along with some noodles and a few peas to the simmering broth.
How can something that started out so gross, end up tasting sooo good?!
