    JustJanS's Note:

    This is my mum's recipe, which I made just recently. My son's girlfriend wanted the recipe, so I figure this is the easiest way to give it to her! If you like hearty old-fashioned soup, this is a good stick-to-your-ribs one! Cook time includes making the stock, then next day, the soup, but not the sitting overnight!

      I loved making this old fashioned, delicious soup that fed our bodies and souls. We had visions of being transported to the Outback living in wilder, yet simplier times. I did not vary too much from this recipe except to add less water to the soup since my DH likes a thick, chunky soup. I loved the turnips, and cubed them before I noticed that I should have grated them. They were wonderful cubed and I recommend doing that. The leftovers are in the freezer and we can't wait. Thanks JanS!

      Very Tasty. A lovely stew/soup that everyone in my household loved. I added a pack of Lamb Ragout flavour mix instead of the onion soup and it was very awesome.
