I was recently given 100 pounds of potatoes. I'd like to can potato soup, but can find no related recipe. Any suggestions?

My recipe has chunks of boiled potato, (or raw, if you have all day,) mashed potato, bacon or ham chunks, cheese, onion chips, grated carrot, salt, and water as necessary. Proportions are never the same! Like to crock pot it all day, if possible!

Give this a try.
I have no measurments, cuz that's how I cook but....
saute celery and onions finely chopped in butter, about 1c. celery, 1/2c onion. Add fried bacon, crumbled - to taste (or ham)
turn heat to low, stir in about 2 TBSP of flour, mixing well, then slowly add 1c water, 2c milk, stir thoroughly and simmer. Stir periodically so it doesn't stick to pot bottom. Meanwhile (back at the ranch) kidding...meanwhile, peal and chop spuds into bite size chunks, and boil (ummm about 6 med sized). When soft, drain and add to milk mixture. Stir together. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Serve with fresh baked buns and you're in heaven!

spud secret is to mush in a little cabbage - it gets lost but the flavor stays. :)

This one is pretty close to what my mother used to make. Crumble 3 or 4 pieces of bacon in it and it'd be almost perfection.

Oh Lord, Fred would move in with you. His favorite soup in the world is homemade potato soup. Oddly enough I have no recipes but have been thinking of trying it if I can find an easy enough one. If you find a good one, let me know!
