Medieval Sowpys Dorry
NOT just a curiosity, but a terrific and filling onion soup. Maybe Chaucer's cook in The Canterbury Tales made it when he "boiled the chiknes with the marybones"--but you too can make and serve it hot as a wonderful and aromatic luncheon meal for 4 to 6 people.
Garnish: 4-6 bread slices, toasted to a dry hardness (one for each person)
Soak the ground almonds in 1 cup wine.
Heat oil in a large saucepan, add onions, and cook over low heat for 20 minutes (onions will be golden and soft). Add remaining wine and water, bring to a boil, cover pot, and let simmer for 20 minutes. Pour in almond mixture, reboil, then turn down heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
When ready to serve, put a slice of toasted bread--or "sop"-- in each bowl, then ladle soup over. Serve immediately.
