ABC soup

A healthy, nutritious soup that brings back so much fond memories of childhood. I'm not sure about you but I have this warm fuzzy feeling that reminds me so much of home whenever I drink this soup.

Ingredients: (Serves 5-6)

500g of bones
3 large potatoes, diced*
1 large onion, sliced
2 tomatoes, chopped
4 large carrots, chopped
2.5 litres of water
Salt and pepper, to taste

  1. Bring a pot of water to boil and put in the bones and allow to boil for 5 minutes.
  2. Pour away this pot of water and give the bones a quick rinse. This step is to remove any scum and is known as par boiling.
  3. Bring the 2.5 litres of water to a boil in a large pot over large fire.
  4. Once the water is boiling, place all the ingredients into the pot.
  5. When the water comes to a boil again, reduce to small fire and let the contents simmer for a few hours.
The soup is ready to be served.

*Use waxy potatoes such as red rascal and kipfler potatoes instead of floury potatoes such as sebago (brushed) and golden delight potatoes. Waxy pototes are high in moisture and low in starch. They’re ideal for salads or stews as they hold their shape well when boiled or steamed while floury potatoes break up during cooking.
