Comforting, warm food in your belly 200 years ago. This soup comes from the book The American Frugal Housewife, first published in 1828. It remained a bestseller throughout the 1830s. It was common for soups of the time period to have been enjoyed with minimal solids, and were often strained. This soup can be enjoyed as is or just drink the delicious broth!
