A hearty soup from Revolutionary War days and annually celebrated each year on 12/30. I modified a recipe from Ms Filippone.
Note from Peggy Trowbridge Filippone
Tripe, veal, and vegetables combine to make a thick, hearty soup traditionally known as pepper pot. Do not be deterred by the list of ingredients. This soup is quite easy to make. It does require about 2-1/2 hours of slow simmering, so plan ahead
Rinse tripe under cold water. Drain and place on a cutting board. Sprinkle with salt and rub into tripe to clean the crevices. Rinse again to remove salt.
Place tripe in a 3-quart saucepan. Add enough water to cover by 2 inches, with the tablespoon of salt stirred in. Slowly bring to a boil and simmer 15 minutes. Drain tripe and let cool. Cut into 1/2-inch cubes and set aside.
If you do not have tripe, or do not like tripe, substitute left over roast beef or other beef that is easily cut into small cubes.
Heat a large Dutch oven or stockpot over medium heat. Add 3 tablespoons of butter, chopped onions, whole onion, celery, carrots, leeks, and bell pepper. Stir to coat the vegetables, cover, reduce heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until onions are softened and translucent, about 10 minutes. Do not brown.
Add broth and water to the pot, along with the veal knuckle, tripe/cubed beef, garlic, chile powder, bay leaf, oregano, basil, thyme, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 1-1/2 hours.
Remove the veal knuckle and pick off the meat, cutting any large pieces down to bite size. if using soup bones, use a spoon to get the marrow from the bones into the soup. Discard the whole onion. Return the veal meat to the pot, along with potatoes, cream, and parsley. Simmer 15 to 20 minutes, until potatoes are tender. Stir in cornstarch mixture and simmer 2 to 3 minutes until slightly thickened.
Swirl butter into the hot soup until melted and immediately ladle into bowls to serve.
