My second soup for canning recipe. This one is from Libbie, via Mrs Carl Sporleder. It is a very old recipe and I am writing the recipe as written. I am guessing at the amount this makes. Always follow the Ball canning book directions. This is an interesting recipe to read just by itself for how they did things back then.
