Soup swaps are a warm way to get through cold and blustery days. You make one kind of soup, gather with friends, trade, and come home with a variety for your freezer. While you're at it, ask everyone to bring enough soup to heat and share for an enjoyable and delicious time. National Soup Swap Day is January 24th. Follow our fun ideas and be a part of it.
Soup Swap 101
If you're a veteran to cookie exchanges, think of this in the same way only you're swapping frozen homemade soups.
- Choose recipes among your friends. Each makes enough so everyone brings home a variety of frozen soups. So for example, if there are six of you or six couples, each person or couple makes and freezes a batch for everyone plus an extra sample to savor during the swap.
- Share recipes via the net - leave it up to everyone to print their own.
- Have everyone freeze their soup in microwavable plastic storage bowls or freezer bags.
- Label the soups with FREE downloadable labels to keep track of what's what. And the labels are really cool!
