Soup in the news

2400 year old Chinese soup

Chinese archaeologists near the city of Xian unearthed what might be the world's oldest soup: a 2,400 year old bronze pot containing bones and liquid. (Wire service photo from the Daily Mail Online.) Thanks to my friend Sarah for sending the article.

I'll make some time this weekend to clean out the freezer. Don't want archaeologists finding any really old soup in there.

Happy holidays to soupies everywhere.

Yes, have often compared our storage of all kinds to an archeological dig...

A good, healthy and tasty new year to you, Lydia, and to all who cling to your every word!

Wow, that is so interesting looking! Same here, need to clean out the freezer going into the new year! Happy Holidays!

I would love to know what ingredients were in that soup. Merry Christmas to all!

Susan, I wish you the same: a new year filled with the warmth of friends and family, and many bowls of soup!

Jeanette, happy holidays to you! This definitely makes me want to clean the freezer; there are some unidentifiables in there...

Mary, me too. Bones, and what else? And what kind of bones?
