You're one of my favorite youtube channels. I'm rather shocked there was no onions in this.

Stephanie Knows says:

I have a pot simmering on the stove. I can't wait to try it!… (I can get celeriac, but since you made it with turnip instead and said it was tasty, that's what I used.) /// UPDATE: I think I used too much piping hot broth to temper the eggs. They started to cook. And so while the taste of this soup is nice (and will be even better when I use beef stock without onion & garlic powder, all I could find), the texture left a bit to be desired. It came out like Chinese egg drop soup!. Still,, It's good. /// UPDATE: HOWEVER, it did not store well. That egg curdled further and made the whole thing look really funky. I'll need to find a tutorial on tempering eggs! This is a hearty, healthy soup I want to make again. Thanks!

I feel like this would be set off with some onion.

Love your vids 😊

Old Salem made it to a Townsend's video? Man NC is moving up in the world 😀 (I'm not terribly far from O.S)

Mark Mower says:

That sounds simple and delicious, I would have to add some garlic and shallots, and fresh herbs at the end when you thicken it.

Dax_Xenos says:

That egg yolk finish is interesting. Gonna try that sometime

Dan Michaud says:

No onion, no potato? Even adding a radish or two would give this soup more flavors. Hmm, adding a soup stone for more body, :-). Nice video. The recipe doesn't call for it but I am sure cooks would have embellished it somehow.

James Berry says:

Isn't the potato a root? Or have you tried adding a potato to the German root soup?

Tim Levis says:

I like to make my soup and stews in the fall and winter, and then eat them outside. The best way to enjoy a homemade meal.

Jonathan Vijayakumar says:

Vegetarians be real hungry in the 18th century if they lived in america!!

Not deglazing the pan…. ngmi

Frankie Dangerous says:

Those were waaaay bigger than a match

Pup314 says:

I'd add onion, garlic, celery, and potatorutabaga, and potato to this recipe, and turn it into a winter root stew.

Randi Kinton says:

I made this two ways…with onion and without. I prefer the one with onions. Thanks for the idea of Root Soup.

Emma davis says:

Was butter something they had year round? Did they have a way to store it?

Billder says:

do you not have parsnips or celery in the US ? interesting ! they’re v nice
