“My husband's grandmother was known as Granny Flower as my son couldn't pronounce her surname correctly and called her Granny Flower instead. She always came to family meals with a yellow tupperware of homemade soup and this one was my son's favourite. You can add whatever additional seasonings you like, this is the way she made it so its the way I make it!”
