“This sounds SO good, and I'm going to make it at the first opportunity..."This interesting and surprisingly subtly flavored Irish soup makes good use of an ancient ingredient that is not only delicious but also believed to have health-giving properties. Serve it with some crusty bread as a real winter warmer." From my fave soup book, "400 Soups".”
