Hearty Amish-Inspired Friendship Soup

1 122

Growing up on the farm without a lot of money, Mom learned how to cook like Grandma. They had plenty of ways to make something out of nothing. Some recipes were handed down through the generations and others they got from friends and neighbors. My grandparents just happened to live on the same road as a nice Amish family. They would often visit one another, swap foods for services, and share stories and recipes.

One of the recipes that Grandma got from that family was Friendship soup. Seemed fitting seeings as they really were friends. I remember eating it all the time when I was younger. When I found the same recipe on Recipe Lion, I couldn’t wait to try it out for myself at home.

It was just as yummy and simple to make as what I remembered. I like to add a few more vegetables to mine, especially when I’m not sharing with my picky kids. It’s a great dish to have around when we aren’t feeling the greatest. It is the ultimate comfort food on those drab winter days too.

Quick Tip: Put dry ingredients in a jar and pass out as gifts.

    I don’t like using pasta, especially when you already have barley, so I skipped that and added some veggies I had on hand. Since I wasn’t making the gift thing in a Mason jar, this worked well although if I were to make the jars this Christmas, I might add dried veggies (I get them a Sprouts).
