This soup won honorable mention in the Homemade Soups Contest in The 1993 Old Farmer’s Almanac. Congratulations to Marge Larson and Patty Johnson (mother and daughter) of Mora, Minnesota.
In a soup kettle, brown butter and flour until it turns a dark caramel color. Add remaining ingredients, bring to a boil, then simmer until potatoes are tender. Just before serving time, make and add the drop noodles.
Mix together with a spoon until mixture is thick but pourable. Pour by the spoonful into the boiling soup and cook until firm.
