IRISH VEGETABLE SOUP FROM THE DERG INN IN IRELAND...THANK YOU ANN.

Our friend Ann made this for us last Saturday night and it is one of the best soups I have ever eaten.
(Especially for Annette and Jill)

Place 4 tablespoons of Kerry Gold unsalted butter in a large pot and saute 1 small onion and two sliced leeks (white part only).  Do not let them brown.
If you use regular salted butter, taste it before you add salt later.

Add...
2 parsnips peeled and sliced
2 medium carrots peeled and sliced
2 medium potatoes peeled and cubed
4 cups of vegetable stock

Let them cook for 25-30 minutes covered
Add 3 tablespoons of finely cut flat leaf (Italian) parsley
salt and pepper to taste

Puree in batches and return to pot
Taste and add 2/3 cup of half and half (or milk)
Reheat and serve

(You may like the soup without the half and half or may prefer to use skim milk...so be sure and taste it before you do this).

Bon appetit!

  6. If you want to remove verification:

    1) Make sure you are in the old Blogger interface. If you're on the new Blogger Interface, click the cog-like icon in the upper right corner of your blog settings screens. Select "Old Blogger Interface."

    2) Go into your settings.

    3) Select "Comments."

    4) Under "Who Can Comment?" I would suggest either "Anyone" or "Registered Users (this one keeps anonymous posters from commenting if you so desire).

    5) Under "Comment Form Placement" I would suggest "Full Page" or "Pop-up" since some folks are having a tough time viewing and commenting on embedded forms.

    6) Scroll down the page a bit and look for "Comment Moderation." You might want to allow moderation on posts older than 14 days because very old posts sometimes seem to be spam magnets. Include your email address if you want notifications of comments left on you blog posts which are older than 14 days, if you selected the above option.

    7) Under "Show Word Verification for Comments?" Please select NO.

    8) Save these changes to your settings.

    9) Return to the new Blogger interface, if you wish by clicking on your Dashboard and clicking "Try the updated Blogger interface."

  7. Yummy! Thanks for sharing this. I was hoping you would after teasing us with the earlier photo.

    You make me laugh about the "if you want to add skim milk"...I was thinking, "if you want to add heavy cream!"

    Thanks!
