This recipe was shared by a woman at our church potluck years ago. It’s my favorite potato soup.

2 carrots (diced)
6 celery (diced)
2 quarts water
1 onion
6 tbl butter
6 tbl flour

In large kettle cook potatoes, carrots, celery, and water until tender. Drain, reserving liquid. Settling vegetables aside. In same kettle, saute onions in butter until soft. Stir in flour, salt, and pepper. Gradually add milk, stirring constantly until thickened. Gently stir in cooked vegetables. Add 1 cup or more of served liquid until soup is desired consistency.
