My great-grandmother passed on this soup to her family generations. In the 1880s, it was a popular meal after a hard day in the field—hardy to satisfy the most ravenous appetite and delicious, too!

"This recipe came out so good. I need to put the leftovers in the refrigerat right now so I don't eat the whole pot. It is more of a stew but I couldn't be more pleased with the taste."

"Great soup, comes together quickly. It is very thick, so I added some chicken stock. The seasoning is timid, but adding just a little more salt and pepper was sufficient to liven it up. Highly recommend."

"This is one of my family's favorites. Ham works fine too. Sometimes I use fresh rosemary instead of thyme. And yes it does turn out pretty thick."
