Recipe: Fish Soup

Make this soup from any rich, glutinous fish, such as cod’s head, halibut neck, flounders, skate, or any cheap fish which is in season, and which you can buy for five or six cents a pound. Chop one or two onions, fry them in a pot with two ounces of drippings, till light brown; season with a level tablespoonful of salt, half a teaspoonful of pepper, and a teaspoonful of sweet herbs of any kind, then add two quarts of hot water, and let all boil for ten minutes; meantime mix quarter of a pound of oatmeal with one pint of cold water, and wash and cut in two-inch pieces about two pounds of fish; when the soup has boiled ten minutes, put the fish into it, and carefully stir in the oatmeal; let it boil twenty minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent burning; it will then be ready to use. The seasoning, drippings, and oatmeal, will cost about five cents, and the fish ten more; with the addition of bread and potatoes, say five cents’ worth of either, it makes an excellent meal, costing about twenty cents.

Twenty-Five Cent Dinners for Families of Six, by Juliet Corson (Year 1879)

Recipe: Thick Pea Soup

Fry one sliced onion, (cost half a cent,) in one ounce of suet or drippings, (cost half a cent,) using an iron pot to fry it in; as soon as it is brown, put into the same pot, three quarts of cold water, one pint, or fourteen ounces of well washed peas, (cost five cents,) and boil as above; this quantity of peas does not need any crusts in the soup; it will be thick enough; but bread may be eaten with it, if you want it. This soup costs six cents.

Twenty-Five Cent Dinners for Families of Six, by Juliet Corson (Year 1879)

Recipe: Vegetable Soup

  • ½ cup leeks 1 cup half-inch potato cubes
  • ½ cup carrots 1 cup hot milk
  • 1 cup cabbage 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons beef drippings ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 3 cups boiling water 1 tablespoon chopped parsley

Cut leeks into slices, carrots and cabbage into small pieces, or put through the food chopper, and cook in beef drippings for ten minutes, stirring often; add boiling water and POTATOES, and cook twenty minutes, or until vegetables are tender; add milk and seasonings, and serve with croutons.

Better Meals for Less Money, by Mary Green (Year 1909)

Recipe: Oyster Soup

  • Three pints of large fresh Oysters.
  • Two table-spoonfuls of butter, rolled in flour.
  • A bunch of sweet herbs.
  • A Saucer full of chopped celery.
  • A quart of rich milk.
  • Pepper to your taste.

Take the liquor of three pints of Oysters. Strain it, and set it on the fire. Put into it, pepper to your taste, two table-spoonfuls of butter rolled in flour, and a bunch of sweet marjoram and other pot-herbs, with a Saucer full of chopped celery. When it boils, add a quart of rich milk-and as soon as it boils again, take out the herbs, and put in the Oysters just before you send it to table. Boiling them in the SOUP will shrivel them and destroy their taste.

Seventy-Five Receipts for Pastry Cakes, and Sweetmeats, by Miss Leslie (Year 1832)

  • 2½ cups boiling water 2 tablespoons tomato ketchup
  • 1½ cups hot milk

Recipe: Tomato and Peanut Soup

  • 1½ cups stewed and strained tomatoes ¼ teaspoon paprika
  • ½ cup peanut butter 2½ cups boiling water
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
