Have made this family favourite for past 50 yrs and my mother for many many years before that! I'm now 80 and still making it occasionally.

First time I have EVER submitted recipe, but so enjoyed the beef bone and veg soup felt like sharing recipe of mine.

Typed this from memory as I went! Jeanne
