German Potato Soup Gluten Free

Cold weather has me thinking rich, thick, robust soup;  soup my mom talked about her Pennsylvania grandmother making.

I wanted some soup that would make me feel like I was wrapped up in my favorite warm blanket in front of a fire gently burning on the hearth. Ahhhh…so comforting!

To me cold, brrrr teeth chattering winter nights have GERMAN POTATO SOUP flashing in neon lights!

German Potato Soup

I found this recipe in my late Aunt Helen’s clipped recipes. It appears to be a recipe in a collection that was going to be made into a church cookbook, but I have no idea where that cookbook is now.
The really neat thing about this recipe is it is written on a piece of scratch paper that appears to be a letter started by a child. It is dated Dec 22, 1959 and starts out “Dear grandmother & grandfather   Hello, IT IS THREE” I think this is so cute…this child seems to be reminding his grandparents Christmas is in 3 days.  My imagination gets kicked into overdrive with tidbits like this, but that’s another story!

I knew if my Aunt Helen had this recipe, even if it was to be included in a church cookbook, it had to be super good and flavorful.
That was enough for me to try it.

I love the aroma of onions and potatoes simmering on the stove.  I don’t know why, but that aroma in itself makes me feel warm.

I never peel any potatoes that I cook, because I want all the nutrients that come in those potato skins.

This soup is so easy, so good tasting, so aromatic and is very filling.

I love this German Potato soup as a good basis for multi-vegetable soup. Your tastebuds and vegetable supply would be your only limit.

Make a big ole pot of this delightful German Potato Soup, grab your favorite blanket and have that fire going and you’ve got yourself a nice winter evening ahead!
