Today is a foggy damp cool day here in the North East Ga mountains. And I find myself craving a bowl of homemade vegetable soup! So I decided to share the recipe while I'm making it.

Homemade Vegetable Soup

1 qt of green beans
1 16 oz bag of frozen peas
1 16 oz bag frozen lima beans
1 16 oz bag frozen corn
2 cups sliced carrots
2 cups diced pealed potatoes
1/2 cup chopped onion
8 oz beef broth
1 qt tomato juice (I use home canned)
1/2 to 1 qt water (depending on how thick you like it)
1 15 oz can tomato sauce
1 tablespoon Summer Savory spice
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon sugar
1 medium size chuck roast

I usually bake my roast in the oven (using the method described for my pot roast recipe) the day before I make this, and then use a fork to separate it into bite sized pieces. (You can cube the roast and put it in raw). Use a large soup pot and put everything into it and bring to a boil, then turn down and simmer all day. This makes a large batch. I put it in Ziploc freezer containers and freeze it up. Makes wonderful gifts for sick friends!
