How Should I Package Soup for Mailing?

Q: My daughter is away at college in Northern California (I live in Southern California), and I want to send her a batch of my lentil soup. What’s the best way to package the soup for shipping? It will travel for about three days via FedEx.

Editor: I’ve shipped a variety of home-cooked food around the country, but never soup. Readers, have you ever shipped soup? Do you have any advice for Jan?
