1 lb. dried lentils, peas, or beans
3 beef bouillon cubes
1/4 tsp. allspice
3 qts. water
1 bay leaf
3-4 stalks celery with tops
Salt and pepper to taste
2-3 lg. carrots
4-5 med. potatoes, peeled and diced
3-4 med. leeks or onions
1 ham bone or pig's feet or pig's shanks
1-2 additional onions finely diced
1/4 tsp. dried mustard
Dash soy or Maggi sauce
2 tsp. butter or bacon fat

In a good sized pot, perhaps pretty enough to take to the table, put in the water, bone or meat, lentils (or peas or beans). Bring to a heavy boil and then simmer on low heat. Add the vegetables, coarsely chopped, and the spices and herbs. Cook for about two hours, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon. If you are unable to stir the soup, put the boiling pot into the oven at 300 degrees for about two hours.

Just before serving correct seasoning. Melt butter or bacon fat and brown onions. If you like, frankfurters, knockwurst or other tasty sausages may be cut into the soup and cooked in it. Washday Soup should be served with rye bread or crispy rolls, and followed by a heavy dessert, such as upside down cake or rice pudding. Many people like to add a dash of vinegar to their Waschtagsuppe. Serves six to eight.
