I tossed all the ingredients except the milk & honey in the crockpot on low this morning - came home to the most delicious smell this afternoon. I added the last ingredients and let it simmer while I made grilled chicken melt sandwiches on homemade rye bread. It was the perfect dinner on the eve of one of the worst snowstorms heading our way. Thank you for sharing this recipe, I'm looking forward to leftovers tomorrow during the snowstorm! I will definitely be making this recipe again and I wouldn't change a thing!
I have made this soup many time and have had rave reviews. It is awesome.
