  1. My husband cannot get enough of this soup. I followed your instructions, but used my instant pot. The darn thing has been intimidating me long enough, so I used the sauté button for everything and was still able to create the fabulous frond at the bottom of the pan. Thank you for sharing this recipe, I am super pleased to have found you. Much continued success and blessings.

  2. I've been making chicken soup for many years YOU DO NOT FRY CHICKEN. That's TERRIBLY WRONG. You can use a whole chicken or chicken breasts or thighs. YOU SLICE UP carrots celery w leaves parsnip turnip onions garlic. You can use chicken broth or cubes or granules. After u put your chicken in pot let it come to a boil & skim off the fat. Let it simmer for 1 1/2 hrs make sure your chicken is cook through. Remove the chicken let it cool down. Add chopped parsley dill & cilantro & some of your cook chicken. Let it cook for 2 more hrs. Your chicken soup should taste delicious. Don't forget 3 bay leaves some salt & pepper. You can also add some thyme. Enjoy. Your will.

  3. I think your thoughts on celery are the same as the majority of people. My siblings and I hated celery, but now we all love it. I like it's diversity, because the root is a carbohydrate, the stalk is a vegetable, the leaves are an herb and the seeds are a spice. You can literally use the entire plant! It's a valuable addition to any survival garden!
