When I was a child, my mother used to make a very simple, but wonderful turnip soup - just turnips, pork, onions, water, salt, pepper, fresh thyme, and some turnip greens cut in 2 inch lengths, adding a little bitter flavor to contrast with the sweetness of the pork and other ingredients. Even knowing the ingredients, I've never been able to duplicate it. Those I've broached the subject with all seem to recoil in horror at the thought of such a soup. Certainly it's one of the few soups I know that includes pork. Have any of the other soup-roadies ever encountered such a soup?
