Carrot Soup

Luckily for me I have some lard in my fridge.  Why?  Because I burned the pan I made this soup in and Marlene Dietrich recommends rubbing burned pans with lard and leaving them to rest.  I might try this if the washing powder trick doesn’t work.

The soup has the hint of burnage about it.  Can I disguise it with some tabasco?  I am not sure.

The last time I made this recipe it was without a doubt the nicest carrot soup I had ever eaten.  And now I have a big ole pot of ruined soup.  But I’m not going to cry over it.  I’m going to put it in the freezer and hope that when i eventually get it out again I will have forgotten I burned it.

Recipe from: Come Into the Kitchen Cookbook.
