January. It brings to mind thoughts of blustery winds and winter chills.
And what better way to warm the January jitters than with a nice, comforting bowl of soup. To pay tribute to soup, January is NationalÂ Soup Month â€” the month in which Americans eat more soup than any other time of the year. Whether they use it to warm up a crowd, beat the blues or calm stagefright, everyone from politicians, to rock stars, to the royal family loves soup. For example, did you know:
* Prince Charles has a hobby of creating new soups using ingredients from his herb garden, according to the London Times. And, the
favorite soup at Kensington Palace dinner parties is the chefs classic watercress, made with chicken stock and cream.
