Meatball And Barley Soup

Everyone in our house loves this soup.  Especially the grandchildren.  I love to make it for them when they come over after school.  Sometimes I serve it with noodles and sometimes I mash up some of the veggies and meatballs.  Whatever way I serve it they love it.  This is a recipe I received from my friend VJ.  She always makes it for her family and when she doesn’t they request it.  Really a nice favourite especially on cold winter days.

Cranberry Meatballs, Meatball Barley Soup, Garage Sale Stiff 047Who really doesn’t like soup?  So tasty and healthy for you.

Cranberry Meatballs, Meatball Barley Soup, Garage Sale Stiff 002Into  a stockpot add 2 boxes of chicken soup, or even better some homemade chicken soup and some water if you want to stretch the soup.  Add your meatballs.  I use IKEA pork meatballs, then add 2 chopped carrots, 2 ribs of chopped celery, 1 chopped onion, 1 or 2 chopped potatoes, 2 bay leaves, some chopped parsley, 2 palm fulls of pearl barley, and 1 tablespoon salt.  Bring all of this to a boil then reduce heat and simmer for approximately 1 1/2 -2 hours.  Until your barley is cooked and also all of your veggies.  Mash some of the contents.  That’s all there is to it.   You can add the meatballs frozen, it just might take a little longer to cook. Serve in bowls and enjoy!
