Soup Disaster

boltsfan | Oct 12, 2012 11:33 AM

Due to the nice rainy day yesterday… I was preparing a nice pot of sausage, spinach & white bean soup. I had everything ready and added the chicken stock as I normally do. I let it simmer for about 30 minutes.

When I went to taste the soup it had an off flavor. Hard to describe but almost lemony. I went back and smelled the box of chicken stock and it smelled definitely not normal with a faint rotten egg smell. I always usually buy stock from Trader Joes or Sprouts but just happened to have a box of Swanson’s so I used that. I cut the box open to see if any mold was present but did not see anything.

Had to throw the entire pot out and order Chinese take-out.

Always pour your stock into a glass container and\or smell before using!!!
