Fall is a time of rejuvenation after the busy summer and spring seasons. Everything slows down in preparation for winter, from the garden to time spent outside and how we cook. We’re eager to have a simmering pot of stew on the stove, warming both heart and home. Slow-cooking allows for ingredients to be thrown together, and several hours later, voilà, a flavorful, filling meal.

Soup recipes are a dime a dozen, but we searched through our archives for the best of the best from-scratch variations. Here are a handful of time-tested, rustic recipes that are sure to stick to your ribs this fall and winter.

Any of these recipes are made even better with homemade broths, home-canned vegetables and local meat.
