How do I get a burnt smell or taste out of food in food

Customer Question

I made 4 gallons f turkey soup and the soup on the bottom burned. I did NOT stir it, but when I removed the soup without disturbing the soup on the bottom, the soup had a burned odor & taste. Is it possible to add something to remove this smell and taste?

Hello and welcome to Just Answer!

I have found the best way to get rid of the burn taste and the odor is to put a spoonful of peanut butter in it and stir until dissolved!

Others say add a potato and that does work with pinto beans, but not other soups, also for sauces it works great!

Try it and see and since its 4 gallons of soup, you might need to add a little more to get the desired result, I usually have 1 tsp. per gallon, but make sure for yourself by adding a little at a time!

I am sorry but I cannot accept the answer. I removed a quart of the soup and added 1/4 a tablespoon of peanut butter, I let it melt and stirred it very well but it still had the burnt odor and tatse. I then added another 3/4 tablespoon of peanut butter, to make it a full tablespoon. After the full tablespoon, it still had the burnt odor and the burnt taste, excpet now I could then taste some of the peanut butter.

sorry I can't accept your answer, I wsh it had worked so I could accept it.

I just got another idea from a cook and they said to add a little curry powder a little at a time until the burn taste is gone!
