Recipe Tuesday

With the fall season and cooler weather fast approaching I've began digging out my winter cookbooks and I look forward to sharing some of my favorite recipes with you!

Potato Soup

Potatoes - as many as you need to feed your family, peeled and cubed
Water - enough to cover the cubed pototoes in the pot
1 cup milk - this needs to be at least 2% milk, skim milk does not work well
1/2 cup corn meal
1 tablespoon flour
Salt and Pepper - to taste

Peel and cube your potatoes. Rinse them well to remove all the dirt and add them to a large pot. Cover the potatoes with water going about 1/2 inch over the potatoes. Salt the water and bring to a boil. Fully cook the potatoes till they are fork tender.

Mix together the cup of milk, cornmeal and the flour making sure to mix well mashing up and clumps. Pour the milk mix into the pot of potatoes. DO NOT DRAIN WATER!

Bring back to a slow boil for 3-4 minutes, make sure to keep an eye on your pot as it may boil over. Remove from heat and allow to sit for a few minutes to allow the soup to thicken. If the soup doesn't thicken well or you want it thicker you can add in a few shakes of Cream of Tarter to help with the thickening.

I love making this in the winter time and it is very filling (or I think so).
