Just randomly surfing through blogathon stuff. I was reading one of your recipies and wants to make it so bad... What's kirschwasser?

I need to head in a few (may or may not make it back to the 'puter this morning), but I have a question. We tend to make soup (by the cauldron). I've gotten pretty good at beef stew (other than the 'problem' that they end up being fork food instead of spoon). However my chicken soup tends to be weak and my veggie soup is boring. Now, we don't need much spice (I'm a complete and total wimp when it comes to zesty/spicy/hot) but some flavor would be good. Ideas on spices/herbs that work well with each other and with plain veggies? Ideas to add some robustness to chicken soup (usually made from leftover roast chicken).-Eowyn

Kirschwasser is a clear, highly distilled cherry brandy. It's VERY strong!Lots of people like to substitute light rum, because kirschwasser can be hard to find and expensive.

Eowyn,When making soup from leftover chicken, make sure you clean the meat thoroughly off the bones, *roast the bones*, and then make your stock. A lot of people neglect to roast the bones - which is fine if you need a white stock, but not so much if you want a robust stock.I'm also a big fan of adding garlic to my chicken soup, or seasoning with fresh thyme or tarragon, kaffir lime leaves or hefty handfuls of fresh chopped cilantro.

My mother found a chocolate recipes book on the shelf of Borders while she was here. I expect interesting results when I get to visit over winter break.
