Depression Era Potato Soup Recipe

1939 Depression Era Potato Soup Recipe
Welcome Friends! It is Sunday morning so we’re going to do another one of the post Depression pre-world War two recipes in our Old Cookbook Show. This time out of the Elmvale community cookbook and today we’re going to make a Potato Soup Recipe.
As we found out – this is a great starting point for all kinds of flavour additions.
8 medium potatoes, peeled and cut up
2 small onions, cut up
Salt and pepper to taste
1Tbsp butter
1 quart milk

In a stock pot place the potatoes, onions, and just enough water to cover.
Boil until potatoes are soft.
Mash without draining, add butter, milk, and salt & pepper to taste.
