soup bunch
 n.— «Since much of the flavor of rice scrapple is in the boiling stock, you might consider using a traditional Charleston soup bunch. This is a bouquet of herbs and vegetables tied up with string, consisting of parsley, a slice or two of squash, some spring onions or small leeks, a few bay leaves on the stem, and a small parsnip. It is removed when the stock is strained.» —by W.W. Weaver Country Scrapple Sept. 1, 2003. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
