Directions Step-By-Step

1
Chop your vegetables.
2
In a medium stock pot, add the potatoes, onions, garlic, celery, carrots, ham, 1 teaspoon chicken bullion paste, and chicken stock.
3
Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until vegetables are fork tender. About 15 - 20 minutes.
4
Add the salt and pepper; stir, turn off heat.
5
In a medium saucepan, on medium heat; melt the butter, whisk in the flour; stirring constantly till form a bubbly paste, about 1 minute.
6
Add the milk a cup at a time; whisking constantly, removing any lumps that may form...add the cup of heavy cream. Remain cooking and stirring until thickened, about 1 minute.
7
Now, add the corn to the soup pot, stir.
8
Slowly stir in the thickened milk mixture, until thoroughly combined.
9
Add the parsley; stir.

Now, bring the soup back to a simmer, just long enough to heat everything through.


Now is when I taste to see if the soup needs more salt, either add more now, or when serving add to your liking.
