I've made it twice now (only 3 days apart) because I had 50 lbs of potatoes to use up and my family of 9 loved this soup! The first time I made it exactly as written, except I added sliced carrots with the potatoes, celery, onions, ham & water and I did not peel the potatoes (as other reviewers suggested.) DELISH! The second time I added more potatoes & carrots and substituted bacon grease for the butter. The bacon grease gave the soup a wonderful flavor! This will definitely be a soup I make again and again. As another reviewer also said, this is a great base soup for other combinations such as spinach and Italian sausage or chicken, gnocchi, spinach & carrots (just like Olive Garden's Chicken Gnocchi soup.) Mmmmmm, mmmmmm!
