    EQUIPMENT USED

    To answer your questions on what equipment I'm using, I've built a section here where you can find and explore what I'm using to make soups.  Ingredients are a little harder, but I will do my best as I source them around.  However, you can always message me on Instagram, TikTok, YouTube, or Facebook, and I will reply and try to point you in some direction!  

    A great help for fish or small bones in soups, including small ingredients such as barley, fox nuts, spices just to keep everything together.

    A MUST HAVE in the kitchen!  Energy saving, cost effective, and perfect for busy chefs!  Check out my article here that explains it.

    Another MUST HAVE in the kitchen for soups!  It's so fine that it will scoop off the top oil and foam layer when using meats in your soup!

    I use these types of stove top safe tea pots to make most of my herbal teas!

        Hi Finley! I’m sorry, I don’t have a newsletter at this time. This soup is also suitable for a 76 year old male. Most soups are generic for all genders, it really just depends on your condition overall. For this soup, I usually just buy the ingredients separately as they are all pretty accessible in the supermarkets. Are you looking to make this soup? Where are you based? Lisa
