dihyrogen monoxide eh? I take it you just had a major chemistry testJune 22, 2009 12:47 am at 12:47 am #884943
Last chemistry test was a couple of years ago. Sorry dear. You’re wrong. The reason I did that is so only those CR addicts can understand the recipe 😉June 22, 2009 12:48 am at 12:48 am #884944YW Moderator-39Member
So you claim that CR addicts do not know the meaning of “water”?June 22, 2009 12:50 am at 12:50 am #884945
NO! Only the addicts would understand that dihydrogen monoxide means….<drum roll> WATER!
Got it?June 22, 2009 12:56 am at 12:56 am #884946

Very easy, delicious recipe for Potato Soup (Can also be used for Pesach –
Saute 1 or 2 onions until transparent in small amount of vegetable oil. Peel & dice potatoes (as many as you want – the more potatoes, the more soup) and add to pot.
Optionally, add cleaned and trimmed cut up leek (again , as much as you want – experiment until you get it just the way you like it). Add cold water to cover. Bring to boil, and simmer gently for 20 minutes. Salt & pepper to taste. It should taste peppery, but be careful not to put in too much pepper. Though this soup is great fresh, the next day (you’ll have to add water), it’s even better because the released potato starch thickens it.
Enjoy!!June 22, 2009 4:14 am at 4:14 am #884955
YehudisG: thank you, that sounds delicious!June 22, 2009 4:37 am at 4:37 am #884956ambushParticipant
this chocolate thing is sounding good!!June 22, 2009 1:09 pm at 1:09 pm #884957
Chicken soup (my family way):
4-6 chicken thighs
4-6 large cooking tomatoes
Add all ingredients to a large pot (usually 8 qt). Fill near the brim with water. Boil for about 1.5 hours and then simmer for another 2-3 hours.June 22, 2009 1:43 pm at 1:43 pm #884958
I roast a chicken (about 4 lbs) for Shabbos & use the carcass & leftover scraps to make a chicken broth. I add onions, carrots, celery, & about 10 cups of water, simmer for 1.5 hours, then strain it when it’s done. You can skim the fat off after cooling if you’d like.June 22, 2009 2:21 pm at 2:21 pm #884960
If you can find a way of making soup without water, please share that with us.June 22, 2009 2:57 pm at 2:57 pm #884961I. M. HereMember

i desperatly need a good cholent recipe. any ideas???June 22, 2009 4:28 pm at 4:28 pm #884966cherrybimParticipant
anon for this: “I roast a chicken (about 4 lbs) for Shabbos & use the carcass & leftover scraps to make a chicken broth.”
You use the carcass after it’s roasted? Can’t be.June 22, 2009 6:30 pm at 6:30 pm #884967
cherrybim, why not?June 22, 2009 6:50 pm at 6:50 pm #884968
Shtarky, if you dont mind tomatoes and peppers in your chulent, Jax has an excellant recipe!June 22, 2009 6:54 pm at 6:54 pm #884969
Anon, I do the same with turkey carcass. Its awesome! We eat boiled chicken so I leave it in the soup and use that to make a different meal.June 22, 2009 7:09 pm at 7:09 pm #884970
anon, do you use the carcass of the chicken or of someone who ate the chicken?
Really who uses the word carcass in reference to roasted meat?June 22, 2009 7:11 pm at 7:11 pm #884971opp23Member
Why would only CR readers understand dihydrogen monoxide? there are people, who don’t read this site, who have fully functional brain capacity.June 22, 2009 7:27 pm at 7:27 pm #884972
opp23, can’t be.June 22, 2009 7:32 pm at 7:32 pm #884973cherrybimParticipant
By using bones that are already baked, do they really give that much more flavor, especially with 10 cups of water? And if the bird is 4 pounds, how much useable carcass do you have, a pound maybe?
I usually cut away boney parts of chicken and meat and store them in the freezer until I’m ready to make soup. Also the mesh soup bags are fantastic.June 22, 2009 7:36 pm at 7:36 pm #884974
opp23,yes but if they are not CR denizens, they would not see the post the references therefore…
now take your bickering to the schmooze thead and leave this to the intellectual pursuit of attaining good soup recipesJune 22, 2009 7:44 pm at 7:44 pm #884975seeallsidesParticipant
Potato Soup Recipe
Brown diced onion in oil
Brown checked noodles (1 pkg) in separate pot
Cut 5 lg idaho potatoes into sixteenths and put into pot of 4-7 cups water w/salt & pepper to taste.
Add sizzling brown noodles to soup. (watch your face please, as steam will rise)
Put onions in a colander that can rest on top of the soup to add flavor.
Simmer for 30 mins or to taste.June 22, 2009 8:06 pm at 8:06 pm #884976
cherrybim, I roast the chicken with vegetables so I add any vegetables that are left over, along with the drippings from the roasting pan, & any scraps of chicken that are left on the bone when it is cut up. I got the idea for this from Joy of Cooking. It does cook out so I don’t end up with 10 cups when I’m done (more like 8 cups, but I start with 10 cups to cover everything in the stockpot), and I assure you that it tastes like chicken broth, not vegetable soup (I strain out the vegetables & skim off the fat when it cools off). I think that the insides of the bones cook too, since the broth is sort of gel-like when it cools, so maybe this adds flavor too.
When I served this broth on pesach my mother, who was visiting, was amazed that I’d made it from chicken bones. And, according to my kids, she’s a better cook than I am.
SJS, my mother makes soup that way, but I came up with this idea because I don’t like boiled chicken. I’ve never cooked a whole turkey (they seem so intimidating), only turkey breast. Maybe the next time I cook one I’ll try making soup from that.
azi, what word would you use?June 22, 2009 8:14 pm at 8:14 pm #884977
I think the issue about the carcass was for those that dont know enough about cooking and think carcasses only have to do with dead people.June 22, 2009 8:14 pm at 8:14 pm #884978
Anon, whole turkeys are awesome and easy! I just rub some basic spices on it, put potatoes on the bottom of the pan and roast for a while.
If you arent going to serve it right away, slightly undercook the turkey so that reheating won’t overdry it.June 22, 2009 8:31 pm at 8:31 pm #884979
mepal: if you like vegetable soup my sister has a very good orange (based on the color not contents!) soup.
recipe: take any orange vegetables (carrot, squash, pumpkin, etc.,) cook until soft (no real necessity for water). saute onions/garlic for spice. mush together (if soft enough with a fork) until you get a soupy texture (via the juices extracted from the vegetables).
eat and enjoy! (i have never actually tasted it but my father without knowing that there were vegetable in there that he didn’t like said it was very good)June 22, 2009 8:35 pm at 8:35 pm #884980
mepal, I didn’t think of that. “Carcass” is the term used in cookbooks. Usually the term for a dead human body is “corpse” or “cadaver” if you’re a med student.
SJS, I’ve heard that it’s tough to cook turkey so that the white meat & dark meat both cook evenly. You don’t have that problem?June 22, 2009 8:36 pm at 8:36 pm #884981
shtarky: sorry i would give you my father’s/sister’s recipes but there are 2 issues
1) i don’t know the recipes that well
2) supposedly, secret ingredients that are only disclosed to my knowledge when a child gets married and is making the cholent themselves
so if you are willing to wait a couple of years i could help you then :_(June 22, 2009 8:41 pm at 8:41 pm #884982feivelParticipant
i gave this recipe before but it was in a different thread, i have modified the recipe to fit into the soup category.
choose a very good soup pot, must be stainless steel. i prefer this be done on a gas range, but electric will do.
make sure there is a tight fitting lid.
prepare all ingredients ahead of time.
take a piece of rye bread, must be fresh, and must be with seeds
lay it on the bottom of the pot
do not use Pam or any other oil.
place a generous portion of pastrami, nicely marbled with fat on the rye bread
sprinkle some plain yellow mustard on the pastrami.
place a second piece of ryebread on top of the pastrami.
remove all the ingredients from the pot being careful not to disturb their arrangement, and eat.
you can then cook any soup in the pot if youre still hungryJune 22, 2009 9:04 pm at 9:04 pm #884983oomisParticipant
You can always use poultry carcasses to make soup. In fact it is recommended to do so, in order to really recycle the entire chicken.June 22, 2009 11:54 pm at 11:54 pm #884984theObviousMember
feivel… that was very cute!! my brother would like that!June 22, 2009 11:59 pm at 11:59 pm #884985
oomis, that’s why I do it. And the soup is really flavorful.June 23, 2009 12:38 am at 12:38 am #884987
