I have tried to duplicate a succotash soup made by my aunt. My fondest memory of her making this for me was when I was very ill and she came to visit me. Without saying a word, she left my bedroom and out to the kitchen she went to make this for me! Whenever you need a pick me up, this is the soup to have! I like the spices, but they can be left out. After ladling into individual bowls, you may wish to garnish with a little minced fresh parsley. Of course this is equally good in winter with frozen limas and corn!
