Okra Soup Recipe - Gumbo Soup

Recipe: Fry out the fat of a slice of bacon or fat ham, drain it off, and in it fry the slices of a large onion brown; scald, peel and cut up two quarts fresh tomatoes, when in season (use canned tomato otherwise), and cut thin one quart okra; put them, together with a small amount of chopped parsley, in a stew kettle with about three quarts of hot broth of any sort; cook soup slowly for three hours, season with salt and pepper. Serve okra soup hot.

In chicken broth the same quantity of okra pods, used for thickening instead of tomatoes, forms a chicken gumbo soup.
