"Thanks to Priscilla's New England Potato Soup for the starter recipe that I tweaked. Use your imagination! Throw in what you have available! Not sure about spices, read the label on the container. If it's for soup, try it! You can easily make this vegetarian by leaving out animal-based stock and the ham. Enjoy - very delicious!"

  1. Heat butter in a saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir onion and celery until tender, about 10 minutes. Add broth, potatoes, salt, rosemary, thyme, and black pepper; stir to combine. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until potatoes are tender, 15 to 20 minutes.
  2. Whisk flour and 1/2 cup milk together in a bowl until smooth; gradually stir into soup. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally, until combined, 2 minutes. Stir in ham, peas, and remaining 2 cups milk; cook until heated through, about 5 minutes.



Very nice. Easy to make. I made it using an old ham bone as the stock starter, and then followed the recipe. Nice flavors.

This is a great soup! I have made this several times since May 17, 2010, which is when I wrote my first review; this is one of those recipes that had all the reviews cleared out, and it was post...

Thumbs up all around the table, including my two year old grandson.

We really liked this recipe and I made it as listed, however I had only had fat free milk on hand. I added 8 oz of velveeta cheese giving it a richness it was missing. I didn't peel the potatoes...

This a very good soup. Made it just as it said and the whole family loved it!

Easy recipe to put together and delicious to boot. I made this as written in the morning, cooled it and reheated it for dinner. The ham and peas were a nice addition to potato soup. My family...
