Old English soup "STU"
If you read the novels of sir Walter Scott, or at least watched the movie "Jane Eyre", you should know that in Scotland and Ireland quite cold. The Scottish Moors are very beautiful in the flowering period, but the icy winds are blowing through. And rocky shores, in addition, they are saturated with the icy surf. People in these places are harsh, and their food is simple but very satisfying, because it must not only nourish, but also warm. That is why the staple food was a thick, fragrant soup. Poor people used to cook it from shellfish, rich beef or venison meat. Shellfish in abundance were found in coastal waters and cost, unlike the present day, much cheaper than meat. Oh Yes, forgot to add: the recipe found on the Internet for a long time he waited his turn. Here, wait. I don't know how old this recipe as it is stated, because Columbus discovered America only in 1492... although five centuries have passed, can already be considered vintage:)))
