Soup just soothes the soul. Remember those books? It is true: a hot, hearty liquid with some fresh bread is the best way to keep warm and fuzzy inside when the temperature drops.
Soups are generally created with clearer liquids and are a bit lighter with ingredients, while stews are heartier with a lot of goodies in them. You can put stews over a pasta or potatoes because they are thicker than a soup.
Try these venison soups and stews and decide which one to make as the winter comes.
The best part about soups and stews is that you can make a huge pot, fresh, and then freeze the rest to have throughout the winter.
Did I already mention fresh bread? That is also one of my favorite things about soups and stews.
