The weather is starting to turn chilly (a few weeks later than usual) so it’s the perfect time to make a great soup for the family.
This delicious ham and potato soup is easy to make and tasty.
First, combine the potatoes, celery, onion, ham and water in a pot and bring to a boil. Then cook over medium heat until potatoes are tender, which should take about 10 or 15 minutes. Then stir in the chicken bouillon, salt and pepper.
In a separate saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat and whisk in flour with a fork, and cook, stirring constantly until thick for about 1 minute. Slowly stir in milk so it doesn’t allow lumps to form until all of the milk has been added. Continue stirring over medium-low heat until thick for about 4 to 5 minutes.
Finally, stir the milk mixture into the pot and cook soup until heated through. Enjoy.
