Potato Soup (using pork broth)

DifficultyBeginner
Yields16 Servings
Ingredients
 5 lbs Potatoes
 1 qt Pork Broth
 1 qt Heavy Cream or Half and Half (you may need more depending on final consistency)
 1 Onion-Large, finely chopped
 2 Celery Stalks, finely chopped
 2 cups Pre-cooked Ham (we use our leftovers)
 1 tbsp Lard
 1 tbsp Garlic Powder
 1 tbsp Salt
 1 pinch Thyme - be generous with your pinch
Instructions
1

In your soup pot, saute onions and celery in a bit of lard.

2

Wash, peel, and quarter potatoes.

3

Add potatoes to the soup pot (with the celery and onions), and pour in the quart of pork broth. The broth may not cover the potatoes. That is fine.

4

Cover and cook until potatoes are soft.

5

Add garlic, salt, and thyme.

6

Using a potato masher, mash everything together leaving some potato chunks. Mixture will be very thick and mashed-potato like.

7

Add your leftover, chopped ham along with the quart of half and half to the mashed mixture and gently stir with a wire whisk.

NOTE: You may have to add more half and half in order to reach your desired consistency.

8

Reheat soup until it is steaming hot, but not boiling.

Garnish with grated cheese, crackers, chives, etc. and serve piping hot.
