My Bushia, my mom’s mom, made what she called “bum soup” while raising her family in the 50s and 60s. She and my Grandpap were first-generation Americans, their parents emigrated from Poland. This filling and simple Potato Bum Soup is delicious, cheap, and easy to make, with plenty of texture and rich flavors!
