Finnish Summer Soup

Recipe by Julesong

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.
