An AWESOME soup recipe that I got from my Mom. We would take thermoses FULL when we went hunting or ice-fishing. We used to joke and call it "Kitchen Sink Soup".....everything but....lol. ALWAYS good but even BETTER the next day.. ***NOTICE*** Don't go by listed prep time......I have no idea because I prep in advance when I have the time. Root vegetables are great in this. I sometimes add parsnips as well. This recipe freezes great and can be canned too. The stock used is up to you. I use chicken or vegetable stocks. I haven't made this with a beef stock, so if you do, let me know how it came out. BTW, this recipe is just a template. If you've got some favorite veggies to add, do so. Just adjust the times you add them. The "harder" the veg, such as roots, add them early, "softer", add later. Also, if you like, substitute the barley with your favorite beans. Have fun with this recipe. It's EXTREMELY versatile and forgiving....BUT OH SO GOOD!!!! —Roger Dube
