"This is a recipe from my mother's German-Mennonite ancestry. We eat it with hard-boiled eggs diced and added to the soup, for a meal in a bowl. Delicious!"

My grandmother is also a german mennonite, and she used to make this soup except with ham stock as the base, otherwise pretty much identical. To be honest, one of the best soups I have ever had.

Definitely needs a hambone stock to start this soup off and make it truly Mennonite fare...
