Notes

This makes about 11 cups of soup. We like to make big batches, and store leftovers in the freezer. I use 500mL mason jars, and fill them up leaving about 1-inch from the top open space (the liquid expands when frozen and it can cause the jars to crack. The more dense the soup, the more room you should leave.
