These Spaniards sell fresh soups, chilled, in the likes of milk cartons in their grocery stores. Sometimes in bottles, like milk bottles. Salmorejo, gazpacho, ajoblanco. Wonderful, highly flavorful, fresh cold soups.
Maybe they do this in grocery stores in the US. I am not a good shopper. Often I don’t see what’s there.
I suppose it’s a close call, but when you can get such soups, so fresh, so easily, and so economically, with little or no chemicals, why would you go to the trouble to make them yourself?
Maybe we could get them at the Farmers Market? They’d need coolers. Like they do for seafood and and chickens.
