How to Store Soup

Leftover soup is a great thing to have! If you can’t finish what you made or if you want to take a recipe and double it, here is how you can store it and enjoy a delicious winter soup all week!

  • Refrigerator: Store your soup in an airtight container for 3-4 days.
  • Freezer: Get a gallon ziplock bag and label with with the name of the soup and the date. Once your soup has cooled, pour it into the bag. Zip it closed and lay it down in your freezer. This will take up less room because you are storing it flat! It can be stored in the freezer for up to 6 months.
  • Reheat: If it is frozen, you can either place it in the crockpot and cook on low for 4-5 hours until heated through. If it is in the fridge, just put it in a saucepan and heat on low medium heat until heated through!
