Helen's Chicken Soup

Helen's Chicken Soup

The generous will themselves be blessed, for they share their food with the poor.” Proverbs 22:9 (NIV)

It was 1998 and our next door neighbor Helen decided it was time I learned how to make kosher chicken soup, and to do it "right!"  

Helen was an outspoken and opinionated woman in her 70's and very fond of all of you. She loved that Devan and Brandlyn's bus stop was in front of her house and that she could meet them as they stepped off the bus and chat about their day at school. 

What I loved most about Helen was listening to her personal stories about family, food, and Germany.  I remember Helen as  "brave and courageous."

Today's version of Helen's chicken soup has evolved to meet the changing tastes of growing kids and to reduce the cooking time (less than 2 hours versus Helen's 2 days!).
