Extended Life for: Potatoes and Milk
Potato soup is one of life's great comforts. Discovering the perfect recipe, is one of life's great pursuits. I have enjoyed the potato soup of many friends and a few restaurants. I have produced some of my own delightful pots of potato soup. This one however, is one of my new favorites. Creamy, delicious and worth every minute, this is the soup you want to enjoy during the long yet comforting winter months.
