Reviews for Scotch Broth Soup
"This recipe was simple to make but I found it a little bland, so I added paprika to liven it up a bit. Next time I think I'll add red pepper flakes instead."
"My boyfriend chose this recipe for me to make just by looking at the picture and not the recipe itself. He loved this soup even though he says he does not like turnips and thought they were potatoes. What he doesn't know won't hurt him. Other than the long cook times, this was a very simple, easy recipe. This was the first time for me making my own broth from soup bones. Delish! I served it with another TOH recipe, Oatmeal Mini Loaves. Simple, delicious and hearty meal."
