1In a large ( 6 quart dutch oven or soup pot ) Add the broth and remaining 8 ingredients. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 25 to 30 minutes. .
2Every so often, push down the cabbage into the broth, making sure all cooks evenly. It will cook down, so don't be alarmed at the amount.
3Meanwhile, make white sauce:

In a saucepan or skillet, combine the butter and flour. Cook over medium heat until the flour browns a little.
4Whisk in the cream and milk. Cook and stir until thick. Add a pinch of nutmeg. Set aside.
5Add the ham to the cooked cabbage, stir and simmer until heated through.
6Add the cream sauce to the cabbage mixture, and simmer, covered, another 20 minutes.
7Ladle into bowl..add chives , cheese, bacon...whatever you prefer. Is great all by itself.
