Creamy Ham And Potato Soup
4 hours to prepare serves 6
8 cups russet potatoes, cubed (6-7 potatoes)
2 (8 oz.) packages cubed ham
1 (32 oz.) carton low-sodium chicken broth
1 1/2 cups heavy cream or half-and-half
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 ribs celery, diced
2 carrots, diced
1 yellow onion, diced
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
Place potatoes, ham, celery, carrots and onion in slow cooker, and season generously with salt and pepper, then pour in chicken broth.
Cover slow cooker and cook on high for 4-5 hours, or until potatoes are cooked through and fork tender. Lightly mash potatoes (they don’t need to be smooth).
In a small bowl, whisk together heavy cream and flour until flour is completely dissolved, then stir mixture into soup, along with sour cream.
Cover slow cooker again and cook on high for 15-20 minutes, or until soup is hot and creamy.
Ladle soup into serving bowls and serve hot. Enjoy!
