Soup of the Day... Hearty Minestrone Soup

Soup idiom
souped up = made more powerful.

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.

Hearty Minestrone Soup

Found on Canning Only recipes (Adapted from recipe found on midwestliving)

Makes 4 to 5 quarts 

2 medium onions, coarsely chopped 

6-8 cups shredded cabbage or packaged shredded cabbage with carrot (coleslaw mix) 

3 medium potatoes, diced (about 1 pound) 

2 cups chopped carrots (4 medium) 

1-1/2 cups chopped, trimmed fresh green beans (about 6 ounces) 

1 lb package of navy beans (sorted, rinsed, and soaked overnight in a bowl of water to at least 2 inches above beans) 

1 cup chopped celery (2 stalks) 

2 Tablespoons dried basil, crushed 

1-1/2 teaspoons dried oregano, crushed 

2 32-ounce carton chicken broth or 2 quarts home canned chicken broth 

1 14-1/2 - ounce can stewed tomatoes, undrained and cut up or 1 pint of home canned stewed tomatoes 

To a large pot add onions, cabbage, potatoes, carrots, green beans, navy beans, celery, basil. oregano, chicken broth, and cut up stewed tomatoes. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to a simmer for 30 mins. Using a slotted spoon fill jars at least 1/2 full to less then 2/3s full of soup solids. Fill quart jars to 1 inch headspace with soup broth, remove air bubbles, wipe rims, and assemble lids. Process in a pressure canner for 90 mins for quarts (75 mins for pints) at 10 lbs of pressure.

TO SERVE - Add in 1/4 cup cooked long grain rice per quart. Ladle soup into bowls and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. 

NOTE: If desired add 1/2 cup of cooked diced zucchini to soup as it is heating.
