"Sour Soup"

Submitted by:  Fred Smoot

"I found in a book,  "A Southern Woman's Story"...written by the lady who was in charge of a Civil War hospital in Richmond....a recipe for "sour soup"!  The lady's name was Phoebe Yates Pember."

"You jist put a crock of buttermilk on the fire...and let it come to a bile...then mix up the yellar of an egg...with some corn flour. ...then punch off pieces of the dough and bile them with the soup...with lots of salt and pepper."
