Scotch Broth Soup,yummy on a cold winters day hmm! or anytime of year a delicious soup.Traditionally Scotch Broth is a bit of everything thrown into the pot and is quite filling. In olden days Scots would eat this as a main meal. In modern times many Scottish households still serve it as a main meal rather than a starter. Ingredients can be substituted depending on your own tastes. It's best made the day before to allow the full flavour to soak through.
Scottish Cock-a-Leekie Soup: Made this using a base of fresh, homemade chicken bone/vegetable broth. Although carrots are pictured, the recipe doesn't actually call for them so I added some. I also piled a few strained pieces of Scooby-shaped pasta (from a can of Campbell chicken soup) on top in order to appease my 4 year-old. His response: "Uhh, mommy…moommmyyy! This soup is NOT BAD!" This is a winner. Made 11/10/14 RM
