How to Make Delicious Ham & Potato Soup - My Way

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.
  10. This is a very delicious and satisfying soup..I sometimes garnish with shredded cheese and chives. Even use bacon..or serve as is....


    Enjoy!
