For years, I'd been trying to figure out how my grandmother made her rivel soup. Then I discovered that it wasn't just something she came up with, but a prized heirloom recipe. Many families have their own special version. —Kathy Kegley, Rural Retreat, Virginia

"a little messy, but the best way to process the rivals, is to work with your fingers to form pea-size rivals, add additional flour if necessary. any left over flour mixture can be added carefully to prevent clumping. it is this flour that will provide a thickening agent for the soup.

Also, try adding several teaspoons of sweetened condensed milk. this adds a slight sweetness ti the soup."

"My mother-in-law made this in the i930's. She called it Milk soup and we ate it with sugar or sugar and cinnamon sprinkled on top. Reminds a lot of hot cream of wheat. I used a fork to mix flour,salt and egg. Dump flour mixture in a little at a time. Stir using a wisk and keep stirring until mixture thickens."
