    Jane from Ohio's Note:

    This was passed down from generation to generation. I don't have a recipe for this soup, but I will try to esitmate the portions. It is a sour soup but it is delicious. People either love it or not. My neice never liked it and now she loves it, can't wait till Christmas Eve. My grandmother used to use mushrooms my grandfather and dad would pick up in the woods. I believe they called them sheephead. My grandmother would then clean them and hang them to dry. We can't find the mushrooms for sale and are afraid to go and look for them in the woods. We don't know the good from the bad.

      I loved this soup and couldn't stop eating it. I'd never heard of Christmas Eve soup but found the recipe while searching for a way to use up some sauerkraut juice and I also happened to have a lot of mushrooms in the house. I scaled it down a lot to make only 2 servings and only used about 1 tablespoon of butter total but it turned out just great. This recipe is a definite keeper.
