My husband and I first enjoyed this soup on a tour of Bavaria. When I asked for the recipe, it was delivered to our table, written in English—but with no amounts for any of the ingredients! After a few trials, I got it "right" and forwarded the recipe to several of the people that were in our tour group.

"My mother made this soup when I was a child many years ago. She is gone now and I have tried making it but didn't have the recipe . I think this is it. I used a white onion, and added some chicken broth for some of the water. I love this. Thank you for sharing."
