This receipe is exactly the same as my mother used to make. I have made it and it is the only way I could get kids to eat liver. (don't tell them it is liver and they will love the soup)
This is a little-known traditional German dish that is a mouth-watering winter soup. I add a few more spices (dried basil, oregano, etc.) but that's not necessary.
