The recipe yield is:
Saute beef, onion and celery in melted butter until meat is browned. Stir in remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Remove bay leaf. Makes 2 quarts of hearty soup. My copy, circa 1978 was given to me by Mrs. Denise Funnell, who had a copy of a Plattsburgh, NY newspaper. It was originally submitted in the paper by Mrs. Barry Wilson.
