Potato Soup


This soup originated in North Germany. Different sausages are used in other areas.



  1. Melt butter in a large stockpot or saucepan and when foaming add the vegetables. Cook, stirring frequently, until all vegetables take on a little color.
  2. Sprinkle over the flour and cook over low heat until it begin to brown.
  3. Pour on the water or stock, add salt, pepper and bay leaf and stir well. Partially cover and cook for about 30 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.
  4. Pour soup through a colander, but do not push the vegetables through.
  5. Return the liquid to the pan and add the dill.
  6. Slice frankfurters thinly on the diagonal. Add to the soup and bring back to a boil. Simmer for about 5 minutes and return the vegetables to the pan. Cook to heat the vegetables through and remove the bay leaf.
  7. Transfer to a soup tureen, or spoon into individual soup bowls.

If the potatoes are cut slightly larger than the other vegetables, they will cook in the same length of time without falling apart.
