Burnley Broth

Soups
Lancashire

A broth including green leaf vegetables.

In 2010 Burnley Football Club promoted a Burnley Broth competition. After a public vote held at Turf Moor, where the soups were sampled by players at the club, a receipt from Brunshaw Primary School was chosen. The 'Brunshaw Broth' was made from vegetables grown on the school grounds, including onions, carrots, potatoes, leeks, lentils, fresh parsley, garlic, pepper.

Burnley Broth

An old newspaper describes Burnley Broth as containing:

Greens
Peas
Barley
Dumplings
Five or six pounds of flat rib
A ham shank or two

A reminder that families were once very large and earnings were small, then the broth pot was a welcome means of warmth and sustenance.
