Ingredients

How to make it

  • First, fry the bacon. Reserving the drippings, drain bacon slices on paper towels, and crumble. Reserve the bacon for garnish, with the chives (or parsley).
  • Add the butter to the bacon drippings, and over medium heat, cook the onions, celery, herbs, and nutmeg until well mixed. Cover, turn heat down to low, and cook slowly about fifteen minutes, until the onions are very soft.
  • Add the potatoes and stock. Simmer 45 minutes, until the potatoes are falling apart.
  • Purée the soup in batches, return to the pan and season to taste with salt and white pepper. Garnish with snipped chives and crumbled bacon.

    Made this again without modifications. Added picture. It has a slight green tint from the celery. My first thought was a light split-pea coloration.
    Didn't add any garlic this time.

    GLORIOUS GLORIOUS soup. Didn't have the chicken stock so I used broth and put 2 teaspoons chicken rub in. As good as this soup is with all the substitutions I made, the propper recipe must be awesome.

    Mother was screwing up her nose in all different directions while making faces as made the soup. But then I received a "HEY, this is good" exclaimation as I served some to my posturing guinea pig.

    Didn't have the celery but made it anyway. Simmering away on this first day of below freezing weather.
