This is my favourite soup. Mutton soup is usually served during grape-gathering in Dalmatia because it gives you extraordinary strength and energy which you need during hard work in vineyards. We also eat meat we cook in soup, usually with tomato salsa (see recipe in Zaar – “Island Hvar salsa”) and mashed potato. I had this excellent meal just two weeks ago. It was prepared by my neighbour who is wine producer in village Vrboska on island Hvar, just one week before grape-gathering.
