this has become my winter staple. the only thing i change is adding a pint of home-canned chicken stock in place of a pint of water. - 1/26/13

That's a really good idea! Yum! I'm glad you've liked it. :)
easy and excellent recipe! I tend to over-veggie (as if there could be such a thing) and put a chopped peeled potato in as well. Used chicken stock instead of water; added some liquid smoke and Maggi's seasoning to bring out a smokey flavor (my grandmother used a ham hock). - 10/10/12
