When I was a little girl we would go every year to holy ghost celebration and eat soupa. What is the history of this celebration?

It is much too bland. When we make Holy Ghost Soup for our feast, we have potatoes and chourico which helps flavor the broth. The boiled beef and potatoes are included so that it is not just bread and broth, but a truly hearty soup. Soup shanks are a great alternative to the roast.

I made this last week, adding a cinnamon stick. It was so good and reminded me of what was served in the SES Halls in my younger days! Thank you!
