My boyfriend’s family likes to make soup and chili with sugar in it. I’m personally not a big fan of it and it honestly makes me kind of sick. I’m not sure if it’s a Midwest kinda thing or what, because I’m from the south and we don’t do that there, haha. Anyway, do any of you like, make, or buy sweet soups?
I often add a little bit of sugar to a soup, especially if it’s made with a tomato base. I learned years ago to always put a splash of vinegar, a small handful of brown sugar, and a little salt in any soup. The acid-sugar-salt combination often helps to bring the flavour into balance, but I don’t use enough sugar that it would make the broth itself taste sweet.
