DIRECTIONS

  • Mix all ingredients except the milk and the greens in a large heavy pan or crock pot.
  • Cook on low for about six hours or on high for four hours. If cooking on the stove top, bring to a boil and then simmer until carrots and celery are tender.
  • Add the milk or half-n-half and heat until soup is good and hot again.
  • Stir in the greens and heat just until the greens become limp but are still brightly colored.
