Then grab your can opener for the following...
Filled your crushed tomatoes can about 2 times with hot water and throw that in too. Now, we need some onions. I'd say about 2 large onions chopped to your desired size. I cheat and use these.
Now it is time for the star ingredient...
You have to use the canned corned beef. And sometimes I like to use two cans. Open it up and flake the beef into the pot with a fork.
Now, bring these ingredients to a low boil while you are dealing with these...
I hate to peel and cut up potatoes. Loathe it. So, I fill up my big bowl, gather my knife and sit on the couch. I know, weird. I used about 4-5lbs of taters but it's completely up to you. And I chop them into fairly small pieces but this is up to you too.
Throw in the potatoes, add some salt and pepper to taste and let it simmer until the potatoes are done. I like to let it go a little longer than that- you know a good southern girl lets everything simmer for at least several hours.
Now, sit down and enjoy Della's special soup. I hope this will become one of your family favorites too. Please let me know if you give it a try.

And let me know if you have any questions. It's hard to put something that is burned into your being down on paper. In fact, I don't think this recipe has ever been written down.
