How to Make Grandma's Potato Soup


  1. Put potatoes and onions in a pot.Cover with cold water.Cook on medium high heat till boiling.Boil until fork tender.
  2. In a tall glass put in the flour and pour in evaporated milk till glass is half full.Fill the rest of the way up with cold water.Stir until completely mixed.
  3. When potatoes are done pour the milk/flour mixture in while potatoes and onions are boiling.I pour it thru a strainer to keep from having lumps.
  4. Add butter or margarine.I use about 4 tablespoons.Add salt and pepper to taste.Cook untill thickened.
  5. Serve over white loaf bread.Or I used French bread,cubed.
