Our family loves this soup. My mother used to make this, as did my DH's mother, using a similar recipe. We like to serve cornbread with this soup...yum!

As described, the soup was quite bland. I added: cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes, garlic, rosemary, and sage. Much better! I made it on the stove and it was ready after about 1 hour of simmering.
