Amish Old fashioned potato soup

My in-laws went to see the Amish people a couple of years ago (something I have always wanted to do!) and got me a couple of their recipe books. It’s lovely as they are all hand written. Anyway, as potatoes are not overly expensive it’s a good idea,if you are on a tight budget to use them as much as you can.

Here is an Amish recipe for their old fashioned potato soup

3 cups diced potatoes

1 cup of water

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup diced celery

2 hard boiled eggs, diced

1 tablespoon of butter

3 1/2 cups of milk or more if needed

Cook the potatoes,celery, salt and butter with water until soft. Add milk and eggs. Serve very hot. Very basic and simple the way they like to live.
