Latvian Potato-Wild Mushroom Soup
(Kartupelu zupa ar senem)

Thick, rich, creamy, and laced with sweet paprika, crispy bacon, and pungent
wild mushrooms. 

1 ounce imported dried mushrooms, rinsed and soaked in 1 cup warm water for an
hour (cepes/porcini are best, but asian mushrooms will also work) 
5 cups water 
2 teaspoons salt 
6 russet potatoes, peeled and cubed 
4 slices of bacon, finely diced 
1 onion, finely chopped 
3/4 cup heavy cream 
1/2 teaspoon sweet Hungarian paprika 
white pepper, to taste 
Garnish: chopped fresh dill 

Filter the mushroom liquid to remove impurities, then add it, the rest of the
water, and the mushrooms to a large soup pot, and bring to a boil over high
heat. Add salt, reduce heat, then simmer for 30 minutes. Add the potatoes,
raise heat to medium, and cook until the potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes.
Remove from heat. 

Fish out the mushrooms, let them cool for a minute, then chop them roughly and
set to the side. Fry the bacon crisp in a separate skillet, then drain. Pour
off all but a Tablespoon of bacon grease--and add the onion and mushrooms to
it. Sauté over medium heat for about 15 minutes, until the mixture is nicely
browned. Stir the bacon back into it. 

Meanwhile, Purée the potatoes with a cup of broth, then whisk the potatoes back
into the pot, beating hard to remove any lumps. When the bacon mixture is
ready, bring the potato soup back to a simmer, add the cream, and let heat for
several minutes, until the soup is about to boil. Stir in the mushrooms, bacon,
and onion, season with paprika and pepper and adjust for salt. 

When ready to serve, ladle into bowls and garnish with fresh dill. --=SS=--

Here is my favorite homemade potato soup. You don't use a crock pot, but the
way this soup tastes, I think you'll love it!...


4 large potatoes- peeled and cubed
2 cups water or cover potatoes with water
1/2 tsp. salt  1/4 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. dried minced onions
1 tsp.  minced garlic
1 cup milk
4 oz. Velvetta cheese - cubed
2 tbls butter
2 tbls chicken bouillon granules
2 tsp. minced parsley - fresh or dried


In a large sauce pan, combine potatoes, water, onions, garlic, salt, &amp; pepper,
bring to boil.
Then reduce heat and cover and simmer till potatoes are done. Allow 20 min. (Do
Drain)  Mash potatoes in liquid but leave lots of chuncks. Mashing lets out
some starch to
help thicken the soup. Add remaining ingredients, cook &amp; stir until cheese is
melted. If
soup is too thin, you can thicken it with more
