  1. Make the bouquet garni by tying the herbs up in a cheesecloth or coffee filter. Put a quart of water to boil with about 1/2 t salt (I don’t like to use too much salt if I use bouillon), the bouquet garni and the bouillon. Dice the onion, mince the garlic, and add these to the soup together with the bacon and/or prosciutto ends. Bring this to a boil. Simmer 5 minutes. If scum forms on the surface, skim it off. Dice the potatoes and add to the boiling pot. Cut up everything else and add it. Add the wine. Adjust the liquid so that it covers the vegetables. After it boils again, adjust the seasoning and simmer for about an hour, or until it is done (this is quite subjective). NOTES: * Soup with a mixture of vegetables — I had an eclectic mixture of vegetables going bad in the refrigerator, so I collected them and came up with this soup. It was very good, so I would like to share it with you all. Caveat: I rarely measure anything, so be careful of quantities. * This will serve 6 people at once, or 2 people for three days. It ages well in the refrigerator. : Difficulty: easy. : Time: 10 minutes preparation, 1 hour simmering. : Precision: no need to measure. : Author: Andy Albert : Posted by: Ken Montgomery Shredder-of-hapless-smurfs : University of Texas Computer Center, Austin TX : {ihnp4, allegra, seismo!ut-sally}!ut-ngp!kjm kjm@ut-ngp.ARPA : Copyright (C) 1986 USENET Community Trust —– Archive January 2010 December 2009 July 2009 June 2009 April 2009 March 2009 December 2008 November 2008 October 2008 September 2008 August 2008 July 2008 June 2008
