Soup of the Day... Chicken Soup with Latin Flavors

Today's recipe... Remember... Disclaimer: Some folks don't always follow updated USDA canning methods, they may live in another country where the standards are not the same, they may use heirloom methods passed down through the generations, they may choose other canning methods not recommended. Use this recipe at your own discretion, or adapt it to your own method. I am sharing these recipes EXACTLY as they were sent to me and take NO responsibility for them.

Tomorrow's Soup of the Day... Chicken Tortilla Soup


  1. Pamela, I have a question. You work on pressure canning but here in Poland does not have such a device. Is the pressure cooker would be appropriate instead?

    1. If the pressure cooker is large enough and if it will build the pressure needed for canning. Most pressure cookers here in the US only build up to 5 pounds of pressure. 10-15 pounds of pressure (depending on elevation) is needed to properly process canned foods. Hope this helps! ~~Granny

    2. Thank you very much, I was hope this.
