My mom was a wonderful cook this is her recipe, she was able to make the plainest ingredients into the best foods.
- 5 lbs russet potatoes, chunked
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons dill weed
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 2 teaspoons black pepper
- 1 lb ham, cubed
- Peel and chunk potatoes; boil in just enough water to cover.
- add all ingredients except milk; when potates are tender, slightly mash about 1/2 of the potatoes.
- add milk simmer 20 min.
- serve with warm buttered bread.
Sounds like mom's cooking. She used to make the same soup, but sometimes added bacon instead of ham. Me, I like to boil the ham bone with the potatoes, the flavor from the bone goes all through the soup. Thakns for the dinner idea. Patt
