Simply so, how do you add cream to soup?

The general rule is 1/2 cup of cream for every eight bowls of soup, but add more or less depending on your taste. When the soup is hot but not boiling, slowly add the cream and stir with a ladle until fully incorporated.

Secondly, can I add whipping cream to soup? Yes, you can definitely add cream to your soup. Whether you use a few tablespoons or a few cups, cream gives soup a silky mouthfeel and rich flavor. You can definitely add milk or other dairy as well, though it will taste gradually less creamy as you go down in percent.

Also to know, do you put single or double cream in soup?

The only cream i use in the kitchen when i am at work. I prefer double cream as it goes further - if you want single cream, you can dilute it with milk. I haven't tested this but I think it might actually work out cheaper if you do this. Add double cream right at the end of cooking and don't boil it or it will curdle.

Can I add half and half to soup?

Add half-and-half at the end of the cooking process, when you're sure your soup has gotten as thick as it's going to get on its own. While the soup sits over medium heat, stir in a few tablespoons of half-and-half. Continue adding the liquid, a few tablespoons at a time, until you're satisfied with the thickness.
