Doodle soup is a broth that’s made from the drippings of roasted chicken or game mixed with salt, vinegar, cayenne pepper, water, sugar and flour. Typically, it is eaten as a soup with crackers or some type of bread or poured back over the roasted meat as a flavoring.

Today, there are many variations of the soup but the strong taste of vinegar remains a key characteristic of doodle soup.



Before putting the meat into the roaster, add 2 tablespoons of cooking oil and 2/3 cup of vinegar. Roast chicken, rabbit, goat, pork or meat of your choice in oven.  Remove meat when it is done. Leave broth cooking on the stove top. Add the following ingredients to the broth:

2/3 cup red distilled vinegar

1 cup water

Salt to taste

Dried cayenne pepper to taste

Gradually stir in flour until it begins to thicken. The amounts given here are for 1 broiler chicken or equal amounts of other meat. The recipe will need to be doubled for 2 chickens or double amounts of other meat.
