Take good soup stock and strain it.
When it boils add cracker balls, made thus:
To cracker crumbs add a pinch of salt and pepper, parsley, cut fine, baking powder, mixed with the crumbs, butter, egg.
Stir all together; make into balls size of a marble; place on platter to dry for about two hours.
When ready to serve your soup put them into the stock; boil five minutes.
