This Dutch recipe is my mother's. She was making this in Holland from scratch during the war. In 1951 we came to America and she continued making it until she quit cooking around 1981. I Love this soup, my brother and sister and I make this especially around Christmas and New Years time.
After coming to the US in 1951 she found that the boxed Lipton Chicken Soup without meat worked and tasted as well as spending time making her own chicken broth.
Another recipe from Holland. There was only one resturant near "Drie Bergen" that made this and my Dad use to drive for miles to get some. Tastes a lot like the Japanese cucumber salad. Wonder where they got it? Or is it the other way around.
I received this recipe from an elderly lady several years ago. She bakes this cake yearly and give them away as Cristmas present. Best fruit cake I've ever eaten. This recipe makes about 10 lbs of cake.
