Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

1 can condensed consomme
1-1/3 cups water
2 stalks celery
1 sprig parsley
1/8 teaspoon thyme
Small piece bay leaf
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
12-18 new potatoes
3 slices bacon
1/4 cup chopped onion

Instructions

Combine consomme, water, celery stalks, parsley and seasonings. Bring to a boil. Add scraped (cleaned well with vegetable brush) potatoes (not pared); continue cooking until tender, adding more water if necessary. Remove potatoes and strain cooking liquid. Boil strained liquid rapidly until reduced to about 1/2 cup. In a skillet, cook bacon until almost crisp; add onion; cook about five minutes until soft, but not browned. Add potatoes to reduced liquid; season to taste and heat thoroughly. Add chopped bacon and onion. Makes 4-6 servings.
