This is a great hearty, cooler weather soup. We love it in the evenings when the temperature starts to dip down cooler, which will be happening here in Iowa before we know it!

What's the purpose of frying the onion prior to adding it to the rest of the ingredients? Sounds delicious! (01/08/2007)

Hi....

The reason why you fry the onion, is so you can bring out the "sweetness" of the onion. Make sure you don't overcook. Fry just until the onions are clear and tender. Hope you try, it's a family favorite of ours.(01/10/2007)
