paradox says: No flyingace, always cook my own with fresh meat, vegetables and herbs. it keeps for days in the fridge and is great for lunch or a snack with a hunk of bread or a bun. I used to work out bush in the Top End of the Territory a lot and at the end of a fortnightly stint with no fridge some grocery items didn't look to good any-more so they all went in the pot together in the morning in the hot coals, slow cooking all day, with a bit of curry for good taste and the cooking was done for a couple of days. That is unless one had the good luck to catch a Barramundi of course.

Captain Slog says: Hi Folks,
With Winter about to raise it's ugly head, I'll have to start stocking up with my favourite soups.
My Favourite soup of all is WATTIE'S Tomato Soup, as well as Heinz BIG RED, and any other Tomato soup.
Other Soups I enjoy are Mushroom, Chicken and Mushroom and, one we don't get here in NZ now, Heinz Beef and Vegetable Broth with Barley. I just LOVE that one! It comes out of the can in one thick solid lump, the way OAK Vege soup used to be when I was a kid, and it tastes the same, with the bonus of having Beef in it too.
To really enjoy this one, I add some Olive Oil to the pan, add the soup and break it up, then rinse the can clean with a LITTLE water. About 1/4 of a canful at the MOST. I like my Soup THICK. Not too thick, though. You know what I mean? Just right! The Olive Oil is just for Taste.
I'm not all that keen on packet soups. The ONLY one I like, though, is MUSHROOM. That's all.
There is one other, an exeption. MAGGI Ox Tail Soup. I use that to add to Stews or other meals as a Stock. Lovely! Reply

Captain Slog says: Hi Jen Jen and Everyone,
Getting back to "Marty Soup," What I like to do is get a can of WATTIE'S, OAK, Campbell's, ROSELLA, Tomato Soup,empty it into a pan, and with the cold tap only just running, wash the can's lid and inside until all the soup is cleaned off and inside the tin, then add what little water and soup there is to the pan. There should be no more than less than a 1/4 of a tin of liquid to add.
The more concentrated the soup is, the better I like it, which is why I only add a little water. Nothing like dippingyour Bread into a bowl of nice HOT Thick Tomato Soup. Or any other soup for that matter.
Anyone else enjoy their Soups in different ways? Reply

Captain Slog says: Hi Ace, Jen Jen, and Everyone,
As I said in my entry, I just LOVE Wattie's Toamato Soup, and all the other brands of Tomato Soup, as well as a few others. Nothing wrong with them! They're ALL Fresh and can be changed to suit your tastes, someone suggested. Sprinboarding is what that's called. Getting a basic recipe and adding to it.

One of you mentioned that you prefer to make your soups from scratch, using your own ingredients. I agree, too, as long as you know how to make a good soup. for those who are not good at cooking, or would just like something new to try, perhaps you already know this one, here is My Soup Recipe. Pretty basic and easy, and NEVER the same whenever I do it. You may have your own ideas. If so, PLEASE tell me? I'd like a few more hints on how I may improve this.
MY SOUP. . . or yours!

Using a pan of your choice, place it on the hotplate and pour into it some Extra Virgin Olive Oil. This is just for Taste. don't put the heat on yet.
Have a look at your Vege's and take one of everything you have.
Onion, Garlic (More if you like), Carrot, Tomato, Potato, Swede, Parsnip, Cup of Peas and Corn, Capsicum. Chilli, Cabbage Leaf, Kumara, Danelion, Celery, Brocolli, Silver Beet, 1/4 cup of Rice, 1/4 Cup of Barley, 1/4 cup of split Peas or Lentals, Some Alphabet Noodles, Ground Pepper, OXO Cube or a packet of MAGGI OX Tail Soup.
Cover with water so the water just comes through the top of the Chopped Veges. Be Sure that the the amount of each vege is appropriate. e.g. You wouldn't use a WHOLE swede, just a piece. The Cabbage Leaf would be roughly enogh to cover half of your Keyboard in size and you just shred it.
Put the heat on LOW and bring to the boil. Give it a bit of a stir every now and then, GENTLY! As soon as its turning over, turn the heat OFF and wait till the boiling has quieted down, then cover with a lid and FORGET ABOUT IT!!! The HEAT will do the rest. This way, you're saving Power or Gas. When its nearly time to eat it, bring it slowly back to the heat on LOW. This might be a good time to taste it.
Its amazing all the tastes of the different veges you can taste, but, there's always something missing. That's why I add a Soup as a Stock, or an OXO Cube.
Waddayareckon, aye? Nice? Be Honest!
Food Snobs? SHUT UP! I don't want to hear your crap, the way you gave it to Shaydee! damned Smegheads!

Ziah says: No. The only canned soup I ever use is Rosella Tomato, but only in the winter time, and only once or twice a year. If I could duplicate this soup from scratch, I would never buy canned soup at all. There are too many nasties in them all - from preservatives to wheat-based thickeners (and don't bother to tell us for allergen advice), to genetically modified food that has NOT been proven safe for human consumption, right down to the packaging leaching into the soup - and it does. But sometimes I crave this soup so badly I have to give in...everything else I make from scratch so I know exactly what's in it and how healthy it really is - and it's better tasting when made fresh, too. I just need a creamy tomato soup recipe that tastes right - and I've tried so many it's not funny... Reply

constraint...this is what I have been doing for soup wise. I usually will add my own fresh meat, & vege as well. Reply

I don't eat packet or tinned soups as they contain too much salt an sugar and colourings and other additives. I don't use salt at all in my cooking, I prefer to use herbs and spices for flavour. I often add a dollop of low fat natural yoghurt to my soups as it tastes great. Reply
