Iris Napora's Borscht

Iris uses chicken broth for a starter, cut pieces of garlic sausage into it, added every fresh vegetable in the garden, including of course peeled and diced beets, chopped beet greens and fresh dill. That's it! That's the recipe she gave us! Period...

Barb's Corn Chowder

A bit quicker than Verna's and still very good.

1 can milk (use the corn can to measure)

Saute bacon cut in small bits and drain off fat. Put corn and milk in pot, add other ingredients and simmer till vegetables are tender. You can saute onion and/or other vegetables with the bacon if you wish.

Stan's New England Clam Chowder

One time we forgot to get clam juice and rather than rush to the store we used Clamato juice. The soup turned out great and a beautiful color as well. Now we use Clamato all the time. Give it a try.

1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 large onion, sliced
3 large potatoes, pared and sliced
8 oz. (1 cup) clam juice
1 cup water
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. freshly ground pepper
1 tall can evaporated milk
2 8-oz. cans chopped clams
Chopped parsley

Melt butter or margarine in a large saucepan; saute onion slices until soft. Add potato slices and saute 3 minutes. Stir in clam juice, water, salt and pepper; bring to boiling; lower heat; cover saucepan. Simmer 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Add evaporated milk and clams with liquid. Heat slowly, just until hot, do not boil. Ladle into heated bowls. Sprinkle with chopped parsley.
