  • 2 cups carrots diced
  • 1 cup frozen corn

  • 15 ounce whole potatoes canned, drained and quartered or 2 medium potatoes
  • 1 medium scallion thinly sliced (white and green)
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme leaves

  • 8 cups water

Instructions

  • Cook on Low 7 - 8 hours or High for 3 - 4 hours. Remove bay leaves and serve.

Notes

Leftover beef  and chicken are delicious substitutions for the pork. Add a 1/2 teaspoon of salt to the recipe for flavor.
*Stove top directions - heat 1 tablespoon oil until shimmering  in bottom of large saucepan. Saute carrots and onion in oil, over medium-high heat,  until starting to brown, about 3 minutes. Add all other ingredients to saucepan and bring to a boil.  Use fork to smash a few potatoes to help thicken soup. Reduce heat and simmer for 40 - 45 minutes until carrots are tender. Serve.
