While on our honeymoon in New England, my husband and I walked into an old country store and were immediately swept off our feet by the aroma of soup that was cooking. We each ordered a bowl and found it to be absolutely delicious! We tried to persuade the cook to give us the recipe, but she said it was a secret. Upon returning home, I experimented until I came up with this recipe, which is very close.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 14, 2011

Pretty good. Maybe we are big eaters; for us this was more like 4 dinner size servings. I might use a little less flour and milk. Also might use fewer peas and/or add diced carrots when sauteing the onions and celery.

MY REVIEW

Scored big time with this at a 20 person birthday party. Would probably be great with corn in place of the peas (I have a picky eater).

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 7, 2008

I made this last night for dinner. The family loved it! I made it according to the recipe, but would be just as good without the ham for a meatless dish. I will definitely make it again. Thank you very much!
