Fixing Burnt Soup?

jough | Aug 6, 200603:14 PM     83

Today I made a huge batch of Beef Barley Vegetable Soup. I had a bowl and it was absolutely delicious.

Unfortunately, I accidentally left the burner on while I was having the first bowl, and by the time I went back into the kitchen about 20 minutes later it had burned only a little on the bottom, but the entire eight quarts of soup tasted burned. It's not awful, and if I have to I'll eat it rather than throw it all away, but dang, it sure tastes like burning.

Is there anything that can be done to salvage it? My dad suggested putting some large-cut sacrificial potatoes into it to filter out some of the burnt taste, but before I bought some spuds I figured I'd ask if anyone knew of a home remedy for taking the burnt taste out of soup. Surely I can't be the first person to do this.

Google totally let me down on this matter.
