Add potatoes, carrots, thyme, nutmeg, pepper and bay leaf. Bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 20-30 minutes until slightly thickened. Add corn, cover and simmer another 15 min. or till all veggies are tender. Add ham and rice and half and half and heat till completely heated. Do not boil once you have added the cream. Remove bay leaf.At this point taste for seasoning (salt or pepper) The ham has usually got a lot of salt in it so it is not in the ingredients but if needed can be added now if desired. may add parsley for garnish if you like.
