i think northern and navy are the same not sure though i use dried northern beans soak them overnight and slow cook all day with a ham hock, onions,
ham chunks, marjurom (sp) a bay leaf, water, can of crush tomatoes and
one can of spicy tomatoe juice. this is really good soup.

the jar i bought has all types of beans not sure if i add the beans later
if it would taste as good. i might just use the jar of beans for a side dish.

We had roast chicken last Sunday, so the carcass became the basis of a huge pot of cock a leekie soup. Some for Monday evening and some for the freezer for later.

Rickell - I may have to put a contract out on you because of your mention of your wonderful fall weather . Up until today, it's continued to be quite brutal here heat-wise. Today it's been in the low 80's, but prior to that we've had daily temps in the mid 90's with heat indices much higher (yesterday, 101). Needless to say, soup hasn't really been on my mind. . .

If my husband liked cold soups, I'd be whipping up batches of Gazpacho & Cold Cucumber - but alas, he's only a hot-soup person. I have made a few soups this summer, but they've all been light semi-clear types.

However, once fall eventually does arrive here (fingers crossed that it's soon!!), I'll be breaking out my repertoire of Minestrones, Black Bean, Portugese Kale/Sausage, Turkey Meatball, etc. I adore soup for dinner so long as the weather cooperates.

Always think about soups. When I was a kid I did not like them, nowadays it's all I eat.

I always enjoy my tomato and basil bisque, finished with crem fraiche and basil ribbon. Beingst it is on the menu, it is always around.

I made some really nice chilled carrot and ginger soup, finished with candied cilantro. It was great! Very light and refreshing on a hot day.

I love soups, love to make them and love to eat them. I am a seasonal cooker, the question at my house in not, what's for dinner?, rather the question is, what needs to be eaten? That means we do not have many soups during gardening season. Last week I made a lentil and ham hock soup, just to clear the hocks out of the freezer. When we were freezing the sweet corn, I was thinking that I would mainly be using the corn for corn chowder. We grow lotsa potatoes, and I make many soups with the potatoes. Yea, soups!!

I can eat soup anytime of year even if it is 100 degrees outside.

I made a chilled mango soup the last week... but I sense that is not quite what you are asking about.

Professionally, I make two types of soup from September till May so I'm always thinking about soup.

At home, however, I haven't quite gotten that urge yet. Give me one night in the low 50s, however, and I'll be thinking of it quickly enough.

I'm with you, Middie. Soup is a year-round food for me.
