A brief history of soup

Evidence of the existence of soup can be found as far back as about 20,000 BC.[3] Boiling was not a common cooking technique until the invention of waterproof containers (which probably came in the form of clay vessels). Animal hides and watertight baskets of bark or reeds were used before this. To boil the water hot rocks were used. This method was also used to cook acorns and other plants.

The word soup comes from French soupe ("soup", "broth"), which comes through Vulgar Latin suppa ("bread soaked in broth") from a Germanic source, from which also comes the word "sop", a piece of bread used to soak up soup or a thick stew.

My favourite is pea and ham soup PT’s favourite is duck soup. What’s your favourite?

      • Well your not getting mine, do you know how much trouble I go to trying to stable our only ox at the nursing home.

        I have plenty of Pigs and Rabbit mind you. I also have a couple of spare pig trotter's available at the moment! straight from the back legs. If some one can come up with a skateboard I can probably double it.

  • You said this would be brief 

    • Now there is an idea for your next Blog Sluggy.... a brief history of "briefs". Could be interesting, will bring Snakey straight back to the site! Lol

      • I could do that. This could be the start of a series of "history of" blogs , I'm excited 

  • Never really got into soup. Are we eating or drinking let's make up our mind. 

    • If it's served in a bowl and you use a spoon then you eat it. If it's served in a glass or a mug and you put that directly to your mouth then you drink it. The choice is yours 

  • I love pea and ham soup, especially reheated the next day with big chunks of ham of the bone in it

    • Brett, You would love my pea and ham soup it's better than sex.
