    Timothy J Higgins Eva's Note:

    This was from a friend that lived down the street. She was about 75 in 1965. She always had a nice garden and would share the items she grew. The women would come over and visit just about everyday to say hello to my mom, brother and I. She would always bring us some of this soup when she made it. My mom is now 83. The lady that gave us this soup has long since passed! This has been passed down for a very, very long time. This could be the best soup I have ever tasted, thanks to Mrs Vollmer!

      While this looked a little intimidating, it has an AWESOME flavor. Very easy to put together - I cooked it in the crockpot - and very hearty. I used a smoked turkey wing in place of the ham hock as we don't eat pork, and I also used beef kielbasa. Thanks Timothy for a great recipe. Made for FALL 2008 PAC.
