This was an actual recipe from my friend Mary, with some modifications, among them the addition of opossums.
But that’s what makes it tasty.
Actually, plain old chicken soup is best. It has fluids, salt, protein and maybe some black pepper. Everything you need to drown a cold. Add noodles or rice and it has starch, too. Nothing better. Some of the best I ever ate was made by Vietnamese village women with nothing more than chicken, salt, rice and water. They cooked it in cut-up gasoline cans (washed of course). Better than C-rats, I’ll tell you.
I don’t know why chicken soup fits the human palette so well, but I have yet to find a society which has chickens available in which it is not revered. It seems to go with our body chemistry perfectly. Except for a very few which are allergic or cannot stand chicken. My favorite chicken “soup” is coq au vin. I have an ancient dutch oven given me by grandma and I cook it in that old monster.
Opossom is Flavor! This one cracked me up. Keep up the good work! >^+^<
