Stone Age Stew? Soup Making May Be Older Than We’d Thought : NPR

There’s nothing better on a cold day than a warm bowl of soup. But when did our ancestors first brew up this tasty broth? New archaeological evidence suggests that soup making could be tens of thousands of years old.

Bill Palladino – MLUI‘s insight:

We just love soup in our house.  One of those restorative things. It’s also the great recycler, without having to separate the cans and bottles and carry it all to the curb.  Like liquid compost that you eat.  O.K., maybe I just took that too far. My favs are split pea with ham, and minestroni. What’s your favorite soup?
