Cream Potatoes & Peas

This recipe brings me back to a simpler time when the demands of life weren't so crazy. It was a time when you couldn't get on a computer or just pick up your smart phone and search for a recipe to make for dinner. This was a time when everything you consumed was produced from your own hard work. My grandmother used to pick all of the ingredients from her own garden and make this soup for my mom, and my mom made it for me.  Although we are unsure of the recipes origins, it is inexpensive and delicious. All you need are 3 main ingredients!

Cream Potatoes and Peas

4 cups Water
8-12 Medium Red Potatoes,cut into 4ths
small package of Peas
1 can of canned milk
1/4 c cornstarch
1/4c cold water
Seasoned salt & Pepper to taste

  • Boil Potatoes in water until soft
  • add peas and canned milk without draining the water. It should thicken up a little bit.
  • Meanwhile, make a slurry by combining the cornstarch and cold water. Slowly add the slurry a little at a time letting it thicken. You may not need to add all of it.
  • Salt and Pepper to taste. I like seasoned salt because it adds a little more flavor!
