Gramma’s soup, and I’m making a big pot today because I’m sharing with some people in need. ūüôā

HUGE POT – Boil the hell out of chicken (wings or legs) and a soup bone – if you can’t find a soup bone beef neck bones will do.¬† Then put in 2 beef bouillion and 2 chicken in.

Can of stewed tomatoes, Can of chicken broth (If you’re going to make a huge pot so you can freeze some use 2 cans.

Chop up one stalk of celery (I only use the leaves in the middle – chopped.
1 onion
1 bag of fresh carrots – chopped
a quarter of a turnip
1 parsnip – chopped
2 cloves of garlic

spices:
Garlic, accent, salt, pepper, oregano, to taste (oh I usually use celery salt if you don’t have that season salt does nicely.

Bring to a boil and then let simmer for four or five hours.  Then once the carrots are soft put in the tiny dot noodles adding as much salt as you would if you were cooking them seperate, and a teaspoon of oil, bring to a boil and then simmer for another half hour Рall done.
