How To Make delicious ham & potato soup - my way

  • 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.
