Pebble Soup Story

Pebble Soup comes from an old tale about a group of hungry travelers who fooled a selfish village into helping them make vegetable soup by telling them they were making stone soup out of water and a stone. The villagers obliged in providing more ingredients to the soup as the travelers hinted that it could use more vegetables and seasonings. Other adaptions of the story involved one of a travelling con man who fooled a woman in her home into making vegetable soup when she denied having any food and telling her he could make soup with just water and a stone.
