My Uncle Fred G. told me this is how he made a big kettle of vegetable soup. He was 93 years of age when he shared this with me. His very simple directions for making his tasty soup are as follows:
Brown about a pound of lean hamburger with about 1/2 cup chopped onion. Drain, and set aside.
Take equal amounts of whatever vegetables you like-- such as celery, carrots, parsnips, and potatoes. Some like to add cabbage, too. Cut them up to be about 1/2" in size and put them into a kettle.
Add salt (and pepper, too?) according to how many vegetables you have. Add enough water to just cover.
Let them cook for about 45-minutes or until almost soft. Now, add the browned hamburger. Fred added, "Sometimes I also add one can of peas and let this mixture cook for another 15 minutes." Remove from the heat and enjoy.

You can find a recipe index entitled "Labels" down along the right side, starting below the picture of the farm. Then, below the "Label" list are pictures of some of my old "standbys"-- click on their picture and it should take you to the recipe.
