Simple Soup Tips!

Or cook the sausage, garlic and onions in the morning or night before, and have them ready on hand to add to the broth.
PRO TIP: Do not let the cream come to a boil because the cream may curdle. Simply add the cream at the end of cook time, when the temp is very low, and keep on the stove until heated through.
Unfortunately, this soup does not freeze well, due to the heavy cream. It is best stored in the refrigerator in an air-tight container for 3-5 days.
