Buffalo Berry Good Soup

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Bergy

This is an authentic Native Canadian recipe. You can make the soup in advance but then remove the cooked berries and add fresh ones just before serving.

This was so interesting I had to try it. My husband really loved it. I was wary of the pepper, but he thought the berry sweetness balanced it out perfectly. I used blueberries.
