Scotch Broth

Marsha Gardner


The calendar says fall in just around the corner and my internal calendar is right in line. I am beginning to crave cool weather foods like soups and stews. I was reading an article about butterscotch candies and thought of the canned "Scotch Broth" I ate as a child. I checked, Campbell's isn't making it any longer, so the only way to have it is to make it myself. It will be tastier and more cost efficient I am sure.
