  • Saute:
  • 1-1/2 cups diced onion or 1/2 cup freeze-dried onions
  • 1 cup bite-size pieces of celery or 1/2 cup freeze-dried celery
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • Add:
  • 4 cups cubed or sliced raw potatoes or equal amount of reconstituted dehydrated potatoes. This is one of my favorites: Cook until the potatoes are tender.
  1. Grab a large size pan and melt 3/4 cup butter and add 3/4 cup flour to make a white sauce, quickly whisk. When it is all creamy, slowly add 1-1/2 cup cream plus 3 to 3 -/2 cups milk. Stir constantly and use a whisk to keep from getting lumps. I get lumps too sometimes. No worries, bring out the hand mixer to make it smooth. Combine the other ingredients and you have a fabulous potato soup. Here's where it gets fun, you can add vegetables like corn, peas, broccoli or cheese. This is a great base soup to serve a lot of people. Serve with grated cheese on top.
