Warm up from head to toe with a toasty mug of soup. Savor a sip of chowder or brighten a wintry supper with a snappy bowl of chili.

Nothing takes the chill from a winter day like a serving of soup.Whatever ingredients accumulate in a stock pot, the result is predictable - soup is the solace of the season.

Whether it be a daylong simmered stock or a 10-minuterescue recipe, share your favorite soups or chowders with Deseret News readers. The January Recipe Exchange will run Wednesday, Jan. 2, rather than Tuesday, Jan. 1, but still in time to warm the winter weather.

1. Submit only one recipe per sheet of paper (but all can be mailed in one envelope). Include name and address on each recipe. Mail to Recipe Exchange, P.O. Box 1257, Salt Lake City, UT 84110.
