Originally published in the Sydney Morning Herald, July 24th 1952


  • 2 medium sized potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 2 stalks of celery, chopped
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 cups of pumpkin or orange winter squash. Chopped.
  • 570ml or just over 19oz milk. You don’t need to chop that.
  • 3 tsp plain flour (US all purpose flour)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • A pinch of nutmeg


Put all of your chopped vegetables into a large saucepan.

Cover all of it with cold water.

Simmer on the stove until everything is soft.

Drain off the water and blend.

Take the flour and put it in a bowl. Add a little of the milk and mix into a paste.

Pour in the rest of the milk and stir thoroughly.

Pour the milk and flour mixture into the vegetables and stir over a low heat until it thickens.

Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg.

Serve with a dollop of sour cream or little squares of toast floating on the top.
