Wow! This is a great soup. The broth is rich and delicious. Thank you. This is now one of my top favorite soups to make. I made my broth using the concentrated "Better Than Bouillon" product. In the end I added an additional 1/2 tsp salt.

Another hit of snow from Mother Nature late this afternoon, and the promise of heavy rains tonight - what a winter and what a perfect time to have made your soup this afternoon. Wonderful flavours, served it with crusty rolls ~ comfort food for sure ~ may make it again to get through the Olympics.
