Hi Chillimunchers,

I have a soup recipe for every day of the year.......my idea was to post one each day here on the "Forum".....

If any forum members have preferences as to the type of soup they like, I will start with them first......

Just let me know your preferences.....

i.e. tomato based soups, vegetable soups, etc etc

Cheers,

Lyndi.

Contains far too much sugar: bad for your line, your health and your pocket (compared to fresh home-made soup)

Water, Tomato Paste (8%), Sugar, Milk, Modified Maize Starch, Wheatflour (with Calcium Carbonate, Iron, Niacin, Thiamin), Rapeseed Oil, Butter (Milk), Double Cream (Milk) (1%), Skimmed Milk Powder, Salt, Potato Starch, Acid (Citric Acid), Dried Onion, White Pepper.

Hi Button,

"British Corner Shop" stock Baxters soup and they deliver worldwide.......depends how desperate you are and if you are willing to pay the postage which might make this rather an expensive purchase in the circumstances.......

Anyway hope this helps.....but in the meantime maybe try making some....you maybe pleasantly surprised.....

Cheers,

Lyndi.
