1/3 Photos of Old Fashioned Lovage and Potato Soup
French Tart's Note:
A family favourite in our household.....a creamy and easy soup which needs nothing more than good crusty rolls or home-baked bread to serve with it. This travels well in a Thermos flask making it an ideal and comforting soup to take on a picnic. This recipe is based on a Historical 16th/17th Century recipe, no milk was added then - it was made with stock only.
