Autumn Soup

I love autumn, the chill in the air and the red leaves in the trees, Halloween, Guy Fawkes, Thanksgiving and soup! I love soup but only the homemade kind, once I started making homemade soup I’ve never gone back, I double up and freeze the leftovers. With fresh homemade rolls it’s just amazing! 

I use organic when I can but I’ve never seen organic onions, or sweet corn, I use organic low salt stock, I’ve made chicken stock once from chicken bones but we rarely buy a whole chicken so right now I’ll onl be making my own on the occasions we do, and the veg stock ,well I just think it’s a waste of veg.
