My mom is now 91 years old. She grew up during the depression era and she was one of 12 children. Obviously, they had to invent ways to feed a huge family on a shoe string budget. Her mom would make a great big pot of this soup to fill all those hungry little bellies. It's great tasting and makes a good sized pot. I raised my son making this soup and he loves it to this day. I also like to use it to carry lunches to work.
