New England Potato Soup

New England Potato Soup

"While on our honeymoon in New England, my husband and I walked into an old country store and were immediately swept off our feet by the aroma of soup that was cooking. We each ordered a bowl and found it to be absolutely delicious! We tried to persuade the cook to give us the recipe, but she said it was a secret. Upon returning home, I experimented until I came up with this recipe, which is very close."

I think this is a great recipe. The flavors are wonderful. I think the secret is cooking the potatoes in the chicken broth which gives the soup more flavor. I used low sodium chicken broth, a...

Excellent! All the richness of a cream soup without the heavy cream. I used another reviewer's idea of adding a grated carrot for extra nutrition and color. Also, since I didn't have any ham, ...

Good soup, would probably give it 4.5 stars. I don't think I'm a big fan of Thyme and will probably change up the spices next time I make this. I didn't read the directions all the way and end...

Even little kids love this, thanks to the ham. I sauteed carrots with the onion and celery and substituted broccoli for the peas. Delicious!

I followed the recipe exactly, and it was delicious! The next time I make it, I may increase the flour and milk combination to make it a touch more thicker. But believe me, it was fine with th...

This is a great, hearty potato soup. I used fat free 1/2 & 1/2 instead of cream & reduced fat margerine instead of butter and it still turned out great.
