Lizbeth Elliott's KY Veggie Soup

Dee Dee Madison


This soup was a staple on this Kentucky farm when my grandma was growing up and she made it when I was growing up. I loved it as a kid and still love to this day.

In the winter you can make it with frozen veggies and in the summer, do fresh veggies.

3Open cans of Tomatoes and pour each can into the Dutch Oven. Fill each can twice with water and pour into the Dutch Oven. Bring the soup back to a rolling boil(high). Let boil for five minutes and turn back to a simmer (low). Put a lid on the pot and cook on low for about 4-5 hours. Stir every 30-minutes or so. Turn the soup off and let sit - the longer it sits, the more the flavors mix.
