Beautiful finished product. I omitted green beans and only 2 quarts of broth, but otherwise followed the recipe which ended up making just over 6 pints. I will be making this recipe often, as it was very easy and beautiful. I haven't opened a jar yet, but know these are going to be oh so good!. Now all I have to do for Chicken and Dumplings is cook the chicken, open one of these jars, simmer, add dumplings, and VOILA! Handy to have in the pantry. I'm making a second batch tonight and am adding a few homegrown herbs: basil, parsley, oregano, and a pinch of thyme. Sharon, thanks so much for sharing this great recipe.
