I made soup in the slow cooker on Friday evening and all day Saturday.
if I were to say that the recipe was “just out of my head”, you might think that it was made from mince! Actually, thinking back – when Helen and I got married in 1973, one of the first meals she prepared was “mince soup”. Even she agreed that it was pretty revolting.
No, this had chopped chicken breast, mushrooms, red peppers, leeks and onion – in a chicken stock with basil, roasted garlic, a spot of white wine and anything else that I could find in the fridge that hadn’t gone off.
In some Caribbean countries, pepperpot soup can last for months, if not years, as the cook adds extra ingredients on a daily basis to top it up.
One Soup – It ain’t the ganja; it’s the pepperpot!
I’ve done something the same but the added homemade meatballs (which disintegrated into mince!) and rice – to convert it into a sort of stew – have made me think how lucky I am that I no longer have to go out, being retired, and that there is almost instant access to the loo!
