  1. 2 lb Boiling potatoes

  2. 3/4 lb Bacon

  3. 1 lb Kale

  4. 2 Cloves garlic

  5. Salt and pepper 1 c Heavy cream

  6. Chicken stock as necessary 5 ts Balsamic vinegar

  7. 1 Bunch chives

  8. 25 minutes. Drain, reserving cooking liquid. Break up the potatoes with a potato masher (they should be quite lumpy, not smooth). Meanwhile, cook the bacon over low heat until crisp, turning often. Drain and chop into 1/2 inch chunks. Pour off all but

  9. 2 TBS of the bacon

  10. 1 minute. Transfer to a bowl. Repeat using more bacon fat as needed. Return all kale to the fry pan and add the heavy cream. Simmer over very low heat until the kale is tender, about 10 more minutes. Combine potatoes with about 3 cups of the potato cooking liquid and 1 cup of the chicken stock. Add more stock if needed to get a good consistency. Add kale mixture (with the bacon) to the pot and bring to a simmer. Season to taste with the vinegar and salt and pepper. This is up to you as to how much vinegar you use. Mince the chives or green onions and place in an extra bowl to top the soup. I hope you find this excellent soup. It is great this time of year as it is much like a warm German Potato salad. If you pass this one up you will be the loser. Take care from Ken/still looking for a name for his piranha in rainy but warm Vancouver
