Well, I like to cook(to eat) and I have been learning how to make soups lately, but for some reason, they always taste like vomit. I am extremely confused about why it tastes this way and I was hoping that you could give me ideas why. When I made tomatoe soup, I took tomaotes and put them on a pan and carmalized them with salt, pepper, olive oil, and thyme on them, then I through that into a pot and grinded it down and added vegetable stock. Unfortunately, that tasted like 100% vomit(it was extremely acid too).I blamed that on too much thyme. Later, I made the soup a different way by not adding thyme, I sautéed onions with pepper and salt then I added canned tomatoes, which ended up tasting worse. I tried to add sugar to make it less acidic, but the flavors just got worse. Finally, I went to make corn chowder and I added onions, celery, and carrots and sautéed it with salt and pepper and then added cream. I then added in canned corn and vegetable broth and tht too tasted like vomit, with a horrible smell. I cannot think of why it tastes so bad, any suggestions?
