« Tkemali: A Sour Plum Sauce | Main | Pasta Adapted »

June 21, 2006



Hey Lindy -- just wanted to let you know how much I've enjoyed your last several posts. Radishes? Yum! Sour plum sauce? Gotta try it! And soup in any season? Always a good idea! In our house, soup is a food group unto itself; if it weren't for this miracle of broth/water with *stuff* in it, we'd probably starve. So yes, sometime soon I'm going to try your beautiful chicken noodle/herb soup, which looks quite delicate and yet deeply satisfying...


Oh, my heavens, does that soup looks delicious! You make a most convincing pitch for eating chicken noodle soup -- something that usually doesn't interest me -- at any time at all. Your version sounds truly delicious.

The clear broth, the big noodles, the herbs, the sugar snap peas -- that picture is good enough to eat!


That looks and sounds sooooo good! I will have to give that a try. Thanks so much for sharing.


Turkey bones make such great stock. They seem to contain more gelatin than chicken bones.

I don't see much partridge around the places I shop. Do I sense a story there from the old days?.

Baking Soda

Soup in any season sounds good to me too! This one looks incredibly like summer.


I´m always freezing chicken stock, and labelling the containers. I go crazy if I don´t have it to hand. But I don´t usually go for soup in summer. You´ve convinced me. Lots of herbs in the fridge soup, so I´m definitely going for it.


All I had in the fridge when I got off the train at 3:00 AM today was some chicken stock in a mason jar and some herbs that were still good, the result was nowhere as gorgeous as your soup, but it hit the spot.


Julie-Thank you. Those people that don't like soup in the summer? I do not wish to be rude, but it does seem to me that they are , well, wrong.
the other Julie-I hope you like it if you try it, I think you will.
Braden-thank you-you are from Pgh too, no?
mzn-you are a clever lad. There is a bit of a story. It involves my mothers' English cousin Ronnie, and something he called "Marylebone Soup."
Baking soda-Soup and bread. Some of us could live on that diet for a long time.
Lobstersquad -It's a nice secure feeling-a stash of stock. Must be the peasant in me ...I'm most comfortable with a hoard.
steven-sheesh, why is it that travel by train always seems to involve either leaving or arriving in the middle of the night? Hope you had an good time in the big city.


What a lovely bowl of soup, Lindy! I was planning to get a chicken at the farmers market tomorrow; now I may have to get two. I freeze chicken broth in little half cup plastic containers, then pop the frozen broth pucks out into a big freezer bag so that we can grab as few or as many as needed for a recipe. Paul used the last one this week, so it's time to replenish the stores.


Yep, I am from Pittsburgh as well. :)
