    Kerfuffle-Upon-Wincle's Note:

    Save bits of leftover vegetables (of YOUR CHOICE) in a jar, in the freezer -- when the jar is full, make soup! For my family of five, I saved vegetables in a quart jar. Serve with cornbread or bread sticks, and a fruit salad.

      wonderful soup and a great way to clear out the fridge/freezer. I did change this recipe slightly by using a beef bone and fresh vegetables and thus had to cook the soup longer than specified. The vegetables I used were 1 sweet potato, celery, carrots and cabbage along with the onion and garlic tomatoes and corn (I didn't drain the corn). I didn't use any beans but really enjoyed this soup. Thanks for sharing!
