Jon Townsend does a great demonstration of this:

Shame he doesn't show what it looks like at the end when you reheat it, but it does look like something I would want to try. Once.

I just went a peeked at a few videos because I know for a fact he uses that portable soup in a few videos but the 2 I found also didn’t show a good look at the actual soup after lol. Oh well.

I made some of this a few years ago, following the Townsend recipe. It turned out great! I normally added a few pieces to stews while camping, but I also made a straight cup of broth with it. It tasted exactly like a regular broth, minus the aromatics of onions, carrots, and celery.

One tip for letting it dry is to keep it in a relatively cool place so it can stay solid. I once tried to make some in the summer, and it was just too warm to solidify. After a few days of being liquid, mould bloomed on it and I had to throw out the whole batch.

That's how I know I watch too much Townsends. I read portable soup and instantly think of the channel.

Pocket Soup sounds like a euphemism, but not sure for what.

Probably the prize you get for winning a game of Pocket Billiards.

Nah, sounds more like accidental diarrhea.

“Oh, sorry to run folks. I just had some no-fat Lays, and I think I’ve got some pocket soup cookin.”

Pocket Soup (n) The act of soiling one's pocket whilst attempting to conceal an errection.

"I was talking to Jessica earlier and tried to hide my boner, but I ended up with a handful of Pocket Soup!"

Is that soup in your pocket or are you just excited to see me?

Don't threaten me with a good time.

>The jelly was variously described by Plat as a meat broth boiled down to a thick and dry paste which he called "gelly”: "Victual for Warr", "Dry gelly carried to the sea", and “A food for soldiers on the march.”

I don't quite understand that title.

Can't help but think pocket soup isn't as good a weapon as pocket sand

Dr. Matrurin regularly requests a restocking of this for his medical supplies in the Aubrey-Maturin series of novels (Far Side of the World) by Patrick O'Brien.

Ah! That's what it is! I remember it mentioned many times in the "Aubury and Maturin" books (ie; Master and Commander) and always thought it was hilarious, unlike "stationary soup".

This sounds ... great.

It sounds like a soup stick, or a soup jerky but not stiff.

I don’t understand what you said, but I am fairly certain it did not sound appetizing.

this was the precursor to bone icing and tendon buttercream which are both closely related to marrow frosting which gave rise to ligament fondant and platelet consume.

It becomes a piece of dried out gummy bear without sugar. It doesn’t seem to have much in calories or nutrients besides the gelatin/collagen content. Maybe it’s got decent nutritive minerals


OH_FUDGICLES t1_iz7dz7k wrote

It was used for flavor, not nutrition. Pocket soup would be added to whatever stew you were making, similar to how we use bouillon.
