Granny’s Ham and Potato Soup – Depression Era Recipe The Hillbilly Kitchen


Granny’s Ham and Tater Soup – Depression Cooking Ham and potato soup has endless variations and is the perfect way to use up some leftover ham, fill your belly and warm up a cold winter day. This is an easy, hearty soup that you can modify to use what you have on hand and suit your taste. This was always a favorite at my Granny’s house, and I don’t believe it was ever exactly the same twice because she used what she had. It is exactly what she was talking about when she said, “You need a pot, something to put in it and heat to cook”. So put a pot on the stove and cook up a pot of soup. While you’re at it stick a pan of corn bread or rolls in the oven to go with it. It’s so good the bowls won’t need much washing. May our Lord Bless You ALL with His presence through 2021 and beyond.

  1. Becky: I really enjoy your cooking videos, also, my name is Becky as well . I am from Texas, moved to Michigan in 1972, my dad was a Baptist Preacher, I have used many of your recipes and I also love listening to a Christian woman, Thanks for what you do for us Christians, God Bless you & your Family!!

  2. It’s July 15,2021 today I’m a first time watcher. On your ham and spud soup video it was January.I sure hope your still on. I too am surprised YouTube get you even continue.”If God be for us,who can be against us”☝🏻👍🏻🙌🏻🙏🏻😇✝️ praise the living God.Amen God bless you and yours🙋🏻‍♀️

  3. Bless you! My late adoptive mother was older than most my friends mothers. She was was a farm girl that grew up during the Great Depression in SC… my dad was from West Virginia. I'm so enjoying watching your videos because so far (I'm playing catch up) everything has been something I grew up eating. Potato soup (with or without ham or other meat… sometimes hamburger) is one that is very dear to our family. Not only was it good and filling…. but especially meatless with pepper was always something we were given when sick…. and it worked like a miracle many times. I used it with my kids too…. Now that they are adults when they get sick they call me wishing for potato soup…. and call for the recipe (which of course is only in my head) when their kids are sick. We all love it. My only difference is we always add just a little cornstarch slurry as you mentioned. It makes it very silky… AND I also think it is part of what helps it coat the tummy when sick. I don't add any milk or sour cream then as it can be harder on the tummy and will also thicken mucus if you have a cold or flu.💖💖💖

  4. oh rise and shine and give god the glory glory. you are really so much more than a good cook. you really have words that lift me up. please pray for my wife and me. swe have to find new place to live, and move into move into it. im so scared that im petrifide. your words have really helped. thank you. and we really could need an oven.

  5. Does anyone still need an oven? My husband and I could help. I use a wheelchair and my shoulders are shot so we finally redid my kitchen with lowered counters and a nice toaster oven and convection hot plates. Those things are really great! Being able to see into a pot while cooking, for the first time ever was really great.

  6. Dang Becky!! People love you!!! It’s so awesome to read the comments.

    I make this soup for my mother who grew up in the “coal fields” of eastern Kentucky. Served with cornbread…. I might as well not even be at the table she is so focused on the good.

    In this video you said something that is very, very important. This recipe is “a guide.” Oh my goodness that is so true about recipes and it is evident that’s what you think when watching your videos!! You lay out your selection of ingredients yet you always say this isn’t the only way to make it. As you’ve said, this is what is perfect for you. It might not be perfect for me.

    When it comes to technique, that’s different. You emphasize that. But when it comes to ingredients, you essentially emphasize, “make it your own.”

    Becky, Brett is a very blessed man. I’m a blessed man with my wife. I guarantee Brett knows he is too.
