Potato Soup was a meal served during the Lenten
season. Potato Soup was also served years ago when the funds were low and salt
pork and potatoes were just about the most abundant foods.
can do much more than that stated below, but, this is the old recipe
to the best of my memory. My dad used to love this simple dish.
- 5 med. potatoes
2 tbs. blond roux
1 med-small onion chopped
handful of scallions chopped
2" x 2" piece of salt meat
salt and pepper
Make the roux and throw in
onions. Cut the salt meat in bite sized pieces and add to onions. Sauté
on medium fire until onions wilt. Cut potatoes in large pieces (leave
the peelings on if they're fresh). Add potatoes, sprinkle a little
salt and pepper and cover with water. Boil until potatoes are fork
tender. Add scallions and more salt an pepper to taste.
