Directions

Fry the bacon.
Add the onion, celery, and green peppers to the pan.
Saute all lightly.
Add all to a soup kettle along with the soup stock.
Add the marjoram and cloves.
You might also supply some authenticity by adding a potato to the pot.
Fry the blanched tripe until lightly browned, about 15 minutes.
Add to the soup pot along with a bay leaf, and bring to a boil.
Simmer gently for about 3 hours, until the tripe is well cooked, or you may have to add water.
In the colonies so much pepper was added to the soup that it was pepper pot, smokin' hot.
You add as much ground black pepper as you think you can take
