Hi, this is Rich Buccola here in NYC. Today here on behalf of Expert Village I'm going
to show you how to make homemade chicken noodle soup. First thing you want to do is get a
good rinsing underneath your celery, clean up your celery very nice. You need about 2
cups of celery I'm going to use the leafs and all that's how my grandma use to do it.
She use to put it all and her chicken noodle that's why they said it was a cure for the
common cold cause it would cure anything. So just cut your celery up nice get it cut
up fine the same way we did our onion, garlic and the same way you can do the celery. Just
give it a good cut across it doesn't have to be the desired consistency. What you do
is put it all in the middle and start giving it a chop using the back of your knife. Definitely
chop it up to the consistency but way way much more than 2 cups so if you want to at
this point. If you say this is a cup I notice more than 2 cups so I'm just going to put
in what I know and you can eyeball it or measure it. I made this enough times that I want to
have celery on there I don't want it to be over bearing with celery. So that's about
the right amount and here I'm just going to refrigerate the leftovers for potato salad
or for beef stew. So there's your celery, carrots and let's start chopping up the mushrooms.
