I thought it would be fun to share some of my recipes.  I have the habit of just taking a recipe and than just throwing in stuff that I happen to have in the kitchen. Than I get asked for the recipe....uh....well ...I just threw in this or that. So here goes.

Vegetable Freezer Soup

(canning those garden vegetables)


1 quart peas,  1qt. carrots (chopped), 1 qt. potatoes (cubed),  1/2 qt. onions (chopped), 1/2 qt. celery (chopped fine), 1 qt. cabbage,

2qt. canned tomatoes, 2 cans of corn,  a little bit of fresh dill, 1 qt. of yellow beans (chopped)

Place in a large canner.  Add enough water to cover vegetables.  Bring to a boil and cook just long enough to blanch the vegetables.

A quick way to add to soup base during those cold winter months .
