How to Make It

    Stir the broth, sugar, bay leaf and thyme sprig in the saucepan and heat to a boil.  Reduce the heat to low.  Cover and cook for 20 minutes or until the potato is tender.  Remove and discard the bay leaf and thyme sprig.

    Place 1/3 of the broth mixture into a blender.  Cover and blend until the mixture is smooth.  Pour the mixture through a sieve into a large bowl.  Repeat twice with the remaining broth mixture. Return the broth mixture to the saucepan and cook over medium heat until the mixture is hot and bubbling.  Season with the red pepper, black pepper and nutmeg.
