mama's vegetable soup

Recipe by
Joanne Hendriksen

I remember mama making this vegetable soup each summer harvest of squash & tomatoes and canning it for serving a healthy side dish throughout the winters cold months. Oh how we enjoyed it on cold days after school. So good along with peanut butter crackers. I hope your family will enjoy it as much as we did.
