This is my first time ever writing a review. I love this soup. Just got done making 6 jars for Christmas gifts and made a pot for dinner. It was delicious. I've never had a soup with hamburger in it. I was a little skeptical but it is yummy! Mine fit nicely in quart size jars. I added 1/2 cup split dried yellow peas and the jar filled perfectly and added another splash of color. Don't hesitate to make these as gifts! Great idea!
