I walked back in the kitchen after this soup had been simmering for an hour and it smelled just like a cozy Autumn day at home. This recipe for potato soup simple and delicious. As the original recipe states, it is especially good for people who grow their own vegetables.
I opted to use chicken broth with no added salt. Unsalted broth allowed me to have a little more control over the amount of salt in the final product. I also added about 4 cups of cubed potatoes instead of the 3 cups the recipe calls for (I accidentally peeled too many potatoes).
My dad always stored leftover soup in quart size mason jars. Leftover soup tends to thicken, so be sure to have some extra chicken broth on hand to thin it to your desired consistency.
