Lightning post

Just a quick post tonight as I'm to my eyeballs in things to do.

Today's tip is;

Economical potato soup.

This is a filling, economical dish. Just peel and halve 6-8 medium sized potatoes. Peel and slice three large onions. Heat some butter or oil in a thick pan. Toss the onions in the fat under tender and brown. Add the halved potatoes. Stir them well until coated with the fat, and then sprinkle in 1 1/2 oz of flour. Turn the potatoes and onions in this flour and fat for 2-3 minutes, the gradually add sufficient boiling stock or water to cover level. Cover the pan and allow to simmer gently for 30 minutes. Season with salt, freshly ground pepper, 1 tablespoonful of paprika and a pinch of caraway seeds. Serve very hot. This potato stew could easily form the base of a more elaborate dish. Just add cubes of bacon or pork, sliced sausages or pieces of liver.
