Irish Potato Soup

Jacqueline visited her Irish friend Ella today to lend her a green dress.  Ella's mom lent her A Little Irish Cookbook.  I cooked a recipe for Irish Potato Soup in my new crockpot.  Here it is below.

6 medium potatoes
2 medium oinions
6 cups chicken or ham stock (or milk & water mixed)
1 tbsp. butter (melted)
parsley
salt & pepper

Peel and dice potatoes and chop onions.  Melt the butter and gently cook the onions and potatoes in saucepan until soft but not coloured.  Add the liquid, adjust the seasoning to taste.  Cook in crockpot on high for 4 hours or on low for 8 hours.  Sieve if wished and serve in bowls.  Decorate with chopped parsley.  For added flavour, you may add bacon bits or shredded mozarella cheese.
