Kitchen newbies can also make simple soup to relieve dryness
Soup making might appear to be simple at one glance but the knowledge behind it is abundant. Newbies tend to struggle and seek help, and might have many questions. Should they add water when the soup is boiling? When boiling soup, we need to observe the fire. We can indeed add some hot water into the soup, if it is drying up.
Some people might ask, should we add all the ingredients, especially salt, at once when boiling soup to make it thicker and tastier? We do not recommend doing so, because salt can reduce the solubility of the proteins in the meat. Moreover, ingredients will give out their fragrance during the heating process. This is especially true for salt, which will lose its flavor. Therefore, it is better to add salt into the soup once it is ready to be served.
