In a large soup pot bring 8 cups of water to a boil. Add potatoes, carrots, & celery. Bring back to a boil, reduce heat a bit so it doesn’t boil over, & cook for 20 minutes.

Reserve 2 cups of the water that the vegetables cooked in. Drain the rest of the water off the vegetables & set vegetables to the side.

Melt butter in the same soup pot. Cook onion in the melted butter over medium heat.

Once onions are soft stir in flour & then slowly stir in milk. Continue cooking over medium heat while stirring until thick. Stir in 2 cups of reserved water.
