    Bunsby's Note:

    This broth recipe has been handed down for a few generations and it seems to change a little with each person. I found that I have been able to copy my mother's version pretty accurately. Warning: Don't make this soup if you don't like black licorice flavour.

      I'm rating this 4 stars only because I did not use the star anise and it seems to be an important part of this recipe. I didn't use it because I don't have any. I added celery and broccoli to this broth and it was delicious!! I think this was the best chicken soup I have ever made because this broth is so tasty!!

      Wow, this made great stock. I took a tip from another Mennonite Broth recipe on Zaar and added a stick of cinnamon. I made chicken noodle soup with veggies out of this batch. Will be making this again.

      This is the ultimate chicken noodle soup. I've made this recipe lots and this is the way my mother used to make it. I find chicken noodle soup a bit bland at times and to make more broth I also add some chicken boullion. Great with homemade buns and strawberry jam!
