  1. In a heavy 4 quart covered soup pot, cook bacon until crisp over medium heat.

  5. Add minced onions, celery, carrots, marjoram and thyme.
  6. Stir to blend.
  7. Cover and cook over low for 10 minutes.
  8. Add raw potatoes, stir to coat, cover and cook for 15 minutes.
  9. Push the vegetables to one side of the pan, then stir in flour 1 tablespoon at a time.
  10. When the flour has all been incorporated, mix with the vegetables.
  11. Add the bacon, cook for an additional 5 minutes.
  12. Add 1 quart chicken stock and stir until smooth.
  13. Add the rest of stock and bring to a boil.
  14. Add saffron threads.
