  Out of Old Nova Scotia Kitchens by Marie Nightingale shared by
  Elizabeth Rodier Conf: (1010) F-COOKING The book mentions Portable
  Soup (sometimes called Pocket Soup or Glue) that was made by
  simmering stock for 12 hours and then boiling/stirring constantly for
  8. Then solid stock was formed into small cakes. Sea-faring men and
  woodsmen could carry them in their pockets.
  The Public Soup House in Halifax (spring 1818) distributed 100
  gallons of soup daily made from 50 pounds of beef and vegetables.
