Make Your Own Soup Using These Slow Cooker Tips

Slow Cooker Tips and Lid Pockets

YES, you can make our soups in your slow cooker

All slow cookers are a little different, this is the process we found to work best. If you need to cook on Medium or High settings depending on the time when you need it to be done. For example, if you are gone all day you might leave it on Medium, but if you need dinner ready in four or five hours, you might go with High.


  1. Add all ingredients except Dairy or noodles
  2. Cook for 4 or more hours
  3. Add noodles, cheese, or other dairies 30 to 45 minutes before serving

For Bean Soups:

You can choose not to soak overnight as long as you cook on High all day (High takes the place of soaking). But be sure to rinse beans either way. Meats can be added in the beginning to the slow cooker as long as they are lean. Meats that are high in fat, we suggest you cook before adding to slow cooker in order to drain off the excess grease.

Lid Pocket

In our travels selling soup we had a problem, when serving soups samples what to do with the lid? In looking around we found a cool creation that we thought might be a solution, the Lid Pocket, We tried it out and loved it and then as we used it for the last couple of years our customers wanted to know where to get them. After talking with the creator of the lid pocket we thought it would be great to sell them on our sight, she agreed and here we are. James Dennis Thompson Farm Soups & More, LLC
