Food Friday: Wine Soup

Yes, you did read the title of this post correctly. Today's recipe is for wine soup. Who knew that pretty much anything could be made into a soup?

Today's recipe is from the Improvement Society of the Second Reformed Church. New Brunswick, New Jersey (1890), page 6. I just love one of the quotes found on the title page. "Bad dinners go hand in hand with total depravity, a properly fed man is already half saved." Boy, did that make those women in that congregation nervous? I can just see the gossip, "Did you see Mrs. Smith's husband, he's a heathen. Well, you know his wife can't cook."
