I have fond memories of making this soup with grandmother when I was young. She used an old fashioned grinder for the veggies and always needed a few extra hands for cranking! I am guessing this is a recipe that came out of necessity since my grandma came from a family of 18 kids (and had 9 herself). I haven't had this in years or ever attempted to make but I wanted to post it so I would be sure not to lose the "recipe" which is basically a notecard of ingredients. The only instructions for the broth were "boil for 3 hours" so I am unsure if the amount of water is correct. Please review if you try it - I want to know if it really is good or if I only liked it so much because of the quality time I would spend with grandma making it.
