Poor Man Potato Soup

Submitted by: BIGMAMABJ

Introduction

This soup recipe is one i learned at my mothers side. This is to my knowledge the first time it has ever been "written" down. We were very poor growing up and we ate this soup A LOT in the fall and winter months, becuase the main ingredients were very plentiful in our garden.
