I love soup! :) I also collect Finnish recipes, and this is one of my adopted recipes. It looks like a dish my family and I would enjoy, so I hope to make it and edit it in the future.

I use all milk in this recipe (milk soup) also use red potatoes, and fresh corn off the cob. Other than this it is a summer delight that i've grown up with in Upper Michigan and continue any place i move when i find all the fresh ingrediants. And there has never been any leftovers and great with Finnish bread.

I love it! I've been making this soup for years, although I've made a few modifications to add a touch more flavor to the broth. Instead of boiling the potatoes in water, I use one cup of water and one cup of vegetable broth. I also add a few cloves of garlic (whole or chopped) and boil those along with the potatoes. I've also used FF half and half to reduce the calories and fat; this option works just fine.

This was a nice soup, but didn't have a lot of flavor to me. Maybe I did something wrong. I would love to see other people's reviews on this and maybe I'll try it again this summer with veggies out of the garden. Thank you for sharing! LA :-)
