Recipe: Pea Soup

This version of a Potage St. Germain or Puree of Fresh Pea Soup is from Charles Virion. It is delicious and uses fresh or frozen peas, as well as, boiled ham.

I enjoy adapting and using many recipes from him and if you like country French cooking, I strongly recommend you invest in one of his cookbooks. This recipe appears in his book entitled “Charles Virion’s French Country Cookbook”. It’s published by Hawthorne Books. My book is probably an old edition, it’s from 1972. I really love the book. You can find it at Amazon.com.

This recipe serves 6 to 8.
