    No, you don’t peel them (unless you want to!).

    do you peel the potatoes…it doesn’t say

    I thought one shouldn’t pour hot liquid to the Blendtec. But the instructions didn’t mention to let the soup cool before step #3. Is it alright to add soup to blend right away?


  • Tony Karais

    I would guess 8 based on the fact that the information says the recipe makes 8 servings and the serving size is a Cup. Just a guess though.


  • Blendtec

    Yes, you can pour this hot liquid in but, you’re right, we recommend not putting boiling water right into the jar. The highest temperature the jar should be exposed to is 176°F (46°C) – and things get hotter as they blend.
