An early winter soup - kale and sausage

Here is the soup we had for supper tonight. It was very good and warming on such a chilly evening. This recipe will serve 3, generously, and makes a complete meal.

Kale and Sausage Soup

1 pint chicken stock:

A nice bunch of tender fresh kale:

1/2 pound Italian sausage, frozen, to make the slicing easier:

3 potatoes:

Add to that, 1 large onion and two garlic cloves:

Slice the frozen Italian sausage:

Peel and coarsely chop the onion:

Peel and mince the garlic cloves:

Scrub and cube the potatoes:

Remove the stalks from the kale:

Then, roll it together:

Slice it across the roll:

And then cut it the other direction:

Melt 1 Tablespoon of kettle-rendered lard in a heavy bottomed soup pot:

Add the onion, garlic and sausage and saute, stirring, until the onion is translucent. Then, add the chicken stock, 2 cups of water, and the kale:

Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and let simmer for 20 minutes or until the kale and potatoes are tender:

At this point, taste the broth and see if it needs any salt, but it probably won't. Serve and enjoy! Fast, easy, and wonderful!
