Chicken Soup

Chicken soup is a savory, soul-warming classic known for its therapeutic qualities, especially during cold and flu season. It's a brothy concoction filled with tender chicken pieces, aromatic herbs, and hearty vegetables, like carrots and celery, often enhanced with noodles or rice. With a rich, homemade taste, chicken soup is both a comforting dish and a versatile base for culinary exploration. Its flavors can be adjusted according to preference and dietary restrictions, often serving as a low-fat, high-protein meal. Whether you’re enjoying it as is or customizing it, chicken soup remains a staple in many home kitchens.

Expiration & Storage Tips
When does Chicken Soup expire?
Unopened cans of chicken soup can last for 2-5 years past the printed date on the package if stored properly in the pantry. An opened can of chicken soup should be stored in the refrigerator and consumed within 3-4 days. Frozen homemade chicken soup can be safely kept for 2-3 months if frozen on the day it was prepared.
How do you tell if Chicken Soup is bad?
If your chicken soup has a strange smell, color change, or if you see mold, it's time to toss it. Any unusual texture can also be a sign the soup has gone bad. When it comes to canned chicken soup, if the can is bulging or severely dented, or if the soup makes a loud hissing sound when opened, it may be spoiled and it's best to dispose of it.
Tips for storing Chicken Soup to extend shelf life
• Always make sure to keep your canned chicken soup in a cool, dry place such as a pantry. • If you're storing opened canned soup or homemade soup, make sure it's kept in a sealed container in the refrigerator to maintain freshness. • If you have a large quantity of homemade soup that you can't eat right away, try freezing it in individual servings for easy defrosting later. • Allow homemade soup to cool completely before storing in the refrigerator or freezer to prevent bacterial growth. • Always reheat soup to a safe internal temperature of 165°F before consuming.
