    Imposant potage de pomme. That doesn't really sound any better than great potato soup, does it? Shucks. I usually steam the spuds. Seems like they have more flavor that way. Thanks for the 5 post. RJ

    The bacon sounds good. I've made it without bacon, then used chicken broth and milk for the liquid.
