    Sweetiebarbara's Note:

    I cannot believe that there are so many DIFFERENT recipes for hamburger soup! This is ours and came to us by way of Maxine, with a few modifications. This is so great in the cold of Winter. It reminds me of the bounty of Summer, and warms my heart. Definitely a comfort food. Since I use my own canned tomatoes, my soup may be thinner than the recipe would indicate. Please feel free to add more water, tomato juice, V-8 juice, or sauce to make this soup of your desired thickness or thinness!

      Very good soup. Made it on one of our extra cold days this year and was quite pleased. Mom ate it 3 times. Since there are only 2 of us we froze the rest. Definitely a keeper, thanks SweetieBarbara for posting.

      I loved this one! I resisted my usual urges to tinker with the spices and just halved the recipe for DH & I. I am so glad I left it alone as the simplicity is what allows the taste of the vegetables to shine and makes this so very good. We prefer our soup to be on the 'soupier' side so I ended up adding about 3 cups of vegetable coctail and 2 cups of beef broth to get the consistency I was after. I used slightly less sugar as the tomatoes were not especially acidic. I think this would be a great mid-week meal as from satart to finish it took me less than 1 hour. Thanks Barabara!
