Improv Fish Soup For Year's End

I'm listening to the BBC's absolutely brilliant adaptation of Susan Cooper's "The Dark is Rising." Now caught up to the Christmas Eve episode, I was inspired to make soup while listening to Will take on his role as an "Old One." Since I believe good soup is basically an improv exercise, I can only say that the basis of this one was the " Fisksoppa " published on the National Nordic Museum's website. Feel free to visit that recipe to find out where I started. Put on your favorite audiobook, chop those veggies, and enjoy a quiet winter evening. Improv Fish Soup Set the oven to 300 degrees and pull out an oven safe large pot. I have a huge Corning Ware pot with a glass lid that I use. I can, and do, leave it in the oven for hours. Generally when making soup, I start around 3pm and pull it out of the oven around 6pm or, if the book is interesting, 7pm. The longer it cooks, the better it tastes.
