Mennonite Noodle Soup

“This is a recipe from my Mother in Law who was from a Mennonite family in Manitoba. This soup Is common there, and they just call it simply "Noodle Soup". This will be unlike any other Chicken Noodle you have had. There are healing qualities in the cinnamon and anise, a great elixer for colds/flu. I love it, hope you do too!”
