Soup's On!

It is never too warm, cold, late, or early for soup in this home. Here's what I did today. . .

I cut off all the ends of another bunch of asparagus we bought at the local farm market and sliced them into 1 1/2 inch pieces, saving the top sections.  I made a chicken broth with some Herb-ox chicken granulated bouillon and simmered the pieces in it for about 20 minutes. After letting it cool down, I pulled out my OLD blender and pureed this mixture, slowly adding half and half milk and ground black peppercorn until I thought it was just right. 

It WAS!! Excellent! YAY! Made about a quart. Now don't you think my passion is experimenting?  Well, I'm having fun with foods lately. I might try to munch on a raw tip!
Still have the tips to cook....They will be good. Asparagus spears are special.

HA! Found my exact blender model for sale on e-bay! 
Hamilton Beach Scovill Vintage 1970's Seven Speed Blender, Model 620, made in USA
(p.s. I remember buying this to make frozen strawberry daiquiris)

  1. I laughed about the daiquiris. Fun times. Hope you enjoy the soup. I like soups too. Especially in winter. Blessings, stay safe, xoxo, Susie

  2. I used to have a blender just like that. Think we made daiquiris and other lovely slushies. Still using my vintage Tupperware...hey, if it ain't broke, don't replace it.
