If chicken noodle is the Jewish antibiotic then this is its Scottish cousin on steroids. This really is good for what ails you. Traditional Scottish soup/stew. Its somewhere in the middle. Rich &hearty. My onion hating daughter LOVES this stuff. Yes it calls for prunes. Don't let that put you off. Old days before sugar as we know it they would add fruit into the savory meats. It doesn't make the soup sweet by any means but adds a nice rich earthy flavor to. I met a Scot lady at radiation treatment. Had made some & took her some. " just like my gram made" she didn't even share with her son
