This is a traditional winter soup. It is served in three courses. First the
broth is served with fine or broad egg noodles. Then the meat and
vegetables are served along with a cold sourcream and horse-radish sauce.
This is a slow cooking soup, that tastes wonderful. It is worth the time it
takes. It makes a cold winter day cosy. This serves a family.

Regards, June Meyer.

Sear meat in pot. (This gives greater flavor and color) Cover with water.
Let it come to a boil and skim the foam off. Add salt, pepper corns, and
let simmer for 1 hour. Stick 2 cloves into each onion. Add the carrots,
celery, parsley root and greens, parsnips and onions. Cover and simmer
slowly for about 2 hours. Add potatos last hour of cooking.

Serve strained soup broth with drained cooked egg noodles. Arrange
vegetables and meat on serving platter. Serve meat and vegetables with Sour
Cream and Horse-Radish sauce, Tomato Sauce or Dill Sauce. Add some crusty
bread and enjoy a wonderful meal. Serves 4 to 6.
