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.
