This is a picture of chicken noodle soup. To make the soup my family uses feral chicken meat. As a child my mom would go to this place where they sold live stock and you would choose which meat you wanted and they would kill it for you. My great- grandma had a farm in Haiti where they grew crops and had  animals. My great grandma taught my grandma how to make it and my grandma taught my mom. They grew vegetables like batata (sweet potato), yccua, malanga, carrots, celery, scallions and corn that would all be used to make the soup. 
- Start by fricasseeing the meat (cut up meat to sautee). 
-Once the meat is sauteed add a herbs, such as parsley, garlic, and turmeric.
-Then sautee the vegetables, and add the sauteed meat to continue the cooking process. 
-After the vegetables and meat are nicely blended, taste for flavor
-Then add salt and pepper as needed 
-Add plantains and pasta of your choice to the mixture. 
-Lastly, let it sautee for about an hour.

Then you have your yummy finished Chicken Noodle Soup.

Place(s): Brooklyn and Staten Island, New York and Haiti
