"Wedding" soup in the title is a misnomer. The name is derived from an Italian phrase that meant the vegetables and the meats wedded nicely together. This is a hardy, great tasting soup, good for a meal. - Jughandle
"JERK": This method of cooking pork and chicken dates back to the Carib-Arawak Indians who inhabited Jamaica. After capturing an animal and thoroughly cleaning and gutting it, the Indians placed it in a deep pit lined with stones and covered with green wood, which, when burned, would smoke heavily and add to the flavor. But first, the carcass was "jerked" with a sharp object to make holes, which were stuffed with a variety of spices. The holes also allowed heat to escape without loss of moisture.
