My wife’s dad used to make potato soup almost every Sunday morning. With the weather turning cooler here, she asked if I’d make a pot of old-fashioned potato soup, so I did.
The beauty of this very tasty soup is just how easy it is to make. I did make one small change over my wife’s dad’s version in that I added a bit of chopped parsley. Hopefully he would approve of that change if he was here today.
I used Russet potatoes for this old-fashioned potato soup since they hold up a bit better than say yellow potatoes. No one wants a soggy potato soup.
For a great gift idea try my country five bean soup in a jar.
Old Fashioned Potato Soup
- Place the potatoes, celery and onion into a large pot. Add the water. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Cook 20-30 minutes until just starting to get soft.
- Drain any remaining water.
- Stir in the milk, butter, and salt and pepper to taste. Add parsley if desired.
