you're just cold and miserable all over..................
And when you just can't seem to get warm the only thing you want to eat is SOUP!
This recipe is borrrowed from Ina M. Abrahamzon, who would have been 100 years young today. She writes that this soup recipe was what her momma made for the men as they came in from farm work when chilled to the bone from the harsh Nebraska winters. She was raised in a sod house and lived there until an adult.
Old-Fashioned Vegetable Soup
1 soup bone with scraps of meat on it
Celery and other veggies as desired.
NOTE: Personally I've never bought a parsnip so I'll leave that little goodie out!
Boil bone til meat from bones falls off and remove bone. Allow stock to stand and cool so part of the fat may be removed.
Chop cleaned veggies and cook in stock in a large kettle; seasoning to taste. Cook until veggies are done. Serve piping hot with crackers or corn bread.
Yum...yum. Pass the soup please!
