Fall Harvest Soup
FALL HARVEST SOUP
Its that time of the year again when the weather gets cold and the body craves warmth.
What better way to warm the body on a chilly fall day than a nutritious soup.
Mineral broth is something I always have in the freezer this time of year and use as needed to make delicious soup recipes. Mineral broth can be made with any combination of nutritious vegetables and herbs. Just simmer the ingredients over a low flame or in a crock pot for as long as possible to capture delicious flavors and nutrients.
Here’s one of my favorite combinations… the best part is, there are no measurements needed. Just add it all to the pot, cover with filtered water, bring to a boil, & let it simmer for 5-8 hours on low before straining…
2 small onions (unpeeled), 1 head of garlic (unpeeled), 2 sweet potatoes, skin on, & cut into large chunks, a leek, cut into chunks , 1 head parsley, 8 carrots & bulb celery chopped into large chunks, 2 bay leaves & Jupiter berries.
