The stone soup fable has many iter­a­tions. They all involve a trav­eler com­ing into a town beset by famine.

The inhab­i­tants of the town try to dis­cour­age the trav­eler from stay­ing, fear­ing he wants them to give him food.

They tell him in no uncer­tain terms that there’s no food any­where to be found. The trav­eler explains that he doesn’t need any food and that, in fact, he was plan­ning to make a soup to share with all of them.

The vil­lagers watch sus­pi­ciously as he builds a fire and fills a caul­dron with water. With great cer­e­mony, he pulls a stone from a silken bag, drop­ping the ordi­nary stone into the pot of boil­ing water. He sniffs the brew extrav­a­gantly and takes a small taste.

With great exu­ber­ance, he exclaims how deli­cious stone soup is. The vil­lagers gather around with great inter­est. The trav­eler says rather loudly, “I do like a tasty stone soup. Of course, stone soup with cab­bage — that’s hard to beat.”
