A ‘sop’ is a piece of bread or toast that is soaked in liquid food and then eaten. In medieval cuisine, ‘sops’ were very common. ‘Sops’ were served with wine, soup or broth, which were then picked apart into smaller pieces to soak in the liquid. The word ‘soup’ is a cognate of ‘sop’, both stemming ultimately from the same Germanic source.
