What goes best with cold days? Hot soup.
We put a pot of water and chickens bones left over from a roasted chicken we had for dinner the other night on the woodstove to simmer. The chicken was raised here on our nanofarm last summer.
To our soup we added onion, mushrooms, and ginger sauteed in butter. The mushrooms were foraged this past fall.
We also added some barley and Jerusalem Artichokes (sunchokes). The sunchokes were grown on our nanofarm and harvested, sliced and dehydrated into chips.
Delicious and hardy - and the perfect combination of heat and heart to keep us warm as the temperatures plummet.
There's nothing quite so wonderful as chicken soup ... to soothe the soul.
