Early in winter, I make up big pots of this hearty soup to freeze in plastic containers. Then I can bring out one or two containers at a time. I heat the frozen soup in a saucepan on low all morning. By lunchtime, it's hot and ready to serve! —Ann Main, Moorefield, Ontario
Roasting soup bones in the oven first gives hearty beef flavor to this basic stock. In addition to soups, use the beefy broth to provide extra flavor in stews, gravies, sauces and vegetable dishes. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen
My mother used to make this soup quite often while I was growing up on a farm in Warwick, Alberta. I added my own touch - spicing it up a bit with the bacon and smoked sausage. I really enjoy the zesty flavor that they add.
This recipe was handed down from my grandmother, who was a Danish caterer. My 100% Italian husband has come to expect this on a chilly evening as it now only warms the body but warms the heart as well.
