Sweet Potato soup

What you'll need for this soup:
1 Ontion
1 Pepper, red green or yellow m(if you use green the colour of the soup will change)
2 Carrots
Clove of carlic
Large Sweet Tater
2 ribs celery
2 (like six eight cups really) quarts veggie broth (There are a couple I really hate I'll have to note those ones here later. You can use chicken stock, veggie stock, whatever you fancy)

In a skillet over med heat, add onions and veggies, cook til the onions are either a clearish colour or the veggies come out browned.
once they're done transfer to a stock pot, add the broth
Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for five to ten minutes. The veggies should be quite soft.
In a blender, blend the contents to make a creamy lovely soup. Return to the pot, add sea salt and pepper to taste.

Easy easy steps

1-Boil 1/2 oz of wormwood for an hour in 4Gallons of water
2-Pour 8oz of Wildflower honey over 4lbs of dry malt extract
3-Strain the wormwood from the boil and pour over the DME and Honey.
4-Let Cool to about 70 then pitch your yeast
5-Wait six days before the honey is cleared, bottle and prime with a tsp of sugar
6-Drink 14 days after that, this was from the book of healing beers
