The Potato Soup Recipe

Okay, here's the recipe for the potato soup we like (that I mentioned in my previous post). I got this recipe from Sheila D., and old online friend, several years ago...

6 potatoes, cut into bite-sized pieces
2 onions, chopped
2 carrots, sliced
2 celery stalks, sliced
4 chicken bullion cubes
1 Tbsp. parsley flakes
5 cups water
1 tsp. pepper (we only use a sprinkle or two)
1 Tbsp. salt
1/3 cup butter
1 (12 oz.) can evaporated milk
chopped green onions (optional)

Cook potatoes in 5 cups of boiling water in a large pot for 25 minutes. (It looks like it's not enough water, but it's enough. Don't add more.) Add onions, carrots, celery, bullion cubes, salt, pepper, butter, parsley & evaporated milk. Simmer until carrots are easily pierced with fork (about 20 mins.) Serve with green onions sprinkled on top, if wanted.

Alternate Option: You can also add all the ingredients to a crock pot and cook on low for 10 hours.
