    HAM AND POTATO SOUP


    Serves 8 (ONLY served 3 at my house, so I always double the recipe)

    3.5 c. Peeled and diced potatoes
    1/3 c. Chopped celery
    1/3 c. Chopped onion
    3/4 c. diced cooked ham (leftover Christmas or Easter ham or purchased at the deli)
    3 and 1/4 c. Water
    2 Tbsp. Chicken bouillon granules ( I use 6 cubes)
    1/2 tsp. Salt
    1 tsp. Pepper
    5 Tbsp. Butter
    5 Tbsp. Flour
    2 c. Milk

    Combine potatoes, celery, onion and ham with water in stockpot. Bring to boil, then cook over medium heat until potatoes are tender (10-15 mins). Stirs in bouillon and salt and pepper.

    In a separate saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Wisk in flour with fork and cook stirring constantly until thick. (1 min). Slowly stir in milk...continue stirring (med low heat) until thick (4 - 5 mins).

    Stir the milk mixture into stockpot and cook soup until heated through! Serve with cheese (I melt some cheese in in the last few mins)!


    GLUTEN AND DAIRY FREE VERSION

    I substitute 5 Tbsp. cornstarch for the flour and plain rice milk for the milk.



    I have frozen this inadvertently. I put the pot on the porch and now chop off a chunk when I want it for dinner...

    My German dad and our family spent hours cutting the eyes [with part of the potato] to plant 2 or 3 pieces in one hole. Probably last of march or april. Then in the fall, he dug a deep pit, put straw in it and put bushels of potatoes in it. Kept all winter. Covered the pit with more straw.

    I got about 100 pounds of spuds by gleaning from the fields about 10 years ago. I dryed them in slices figuring I could blend the slices to a powder to make mashed if I wanted and could break up for soups and stews. A neighbor and I tried them this year and they were still good. If you have tried dried spuds you will notice they have a little different taste but they are still good. I love potatoes in almost any form. I will have to try canning them. I haven't done that yet. I have frozen them and they do work that way if I cook them very well after. They are kinda of spongy if not. They freeze well in a dish and I may try canning meals with potatoes. I only have so much freezer space and I can store jars under the bed if I have to.
