CREAM of POTATO SOUP, better than a can version

Nancy J. Patrykus


My husbands family had a huge Wisc. potato farm.
We would often visit them in the fall, and help on the conveyer belt sorting rocks and potatoes.
That was back breaking fun ...
for a couple days!
This is a soup that I often made with the sack of potatoes we would bring brought back home.
I LOVE potatoes, and I accdiently married
into his wonderful family!
If you have never tasted a "fresh" potato soup..
this is for you.
Occasionally I will add two diced
carrots in step #1 for color.
Please try this recipe, for that wonderful fresh farm taste.
