When I was growing up we didn't have a lot of $$$ but my mother could stretch a dollar better then anyone I have ever known. She always grew a garden and canned up to 1500 quarts of vegetables and fruit every season. Depending on where we lived she also raised chickens and rabbits. We never went hungry for food or love. This soup was a family favorite.
