Soup of the Day... TWO Portuguese Soups

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.

Portuguese and Kale Soup 
Shared by member De Peaslee of Canning Only Recipes

Makes about 8 quarts 

Making a big pot of Portuguese and Kale soup to can up. Just the first harvest of kale, about 1 pound. Used two pounds, julienned . That is a LOT of kale, in volume! I julienned 2 pounds of my purple kale, simmered in 8 or so cups of chicken/turkey and pork broth and a couple dashes of hot sauce. Sliced 2 packages of smoked sausage and saute in 1/4 cup olive oil with 1 large chopped onion and 4-5 heaping teaspoons of minced garlic. Add both together, simmer for a couple hours, then will add a few potatoes (diced), and a can or two of beans (kidney or white), heat through and then pressure can. I also add some tomatoes near the end, sounding good. Just added a large bay leaf and about 1 teaspoon of Old Bay Seasoning, too. Process at 75 min. for pints,....90 minutes for quarts. This made about 8 quarts. I used 1 quart turkey broth, 1 pint chicken stock, 1/2 pint ham stock and some water .. for the liquid.
