Ham and Potato Soup
We had ham this week. So tonight it was time for some yummy potato and ham soup. I used the ham bone to make some stock.
I added some water so that I had probably 4-6 cups of liquid.
Then I added 5 medium sized potatoes.
Next came a cup or two of chopped ham, a chopped celery stalk and a diced onion.
I sprinkled in some thyme, dill and paprika. I let it all boil for about 15 minutes.
In a separate sauce pan I melted 5 tablespoons of butter and stirred in 5 tablespoons of flour. After this mixed together smoothly I added 2 cups of milk and brought it to a boil until it was thickened. I stirred this into the soup.
We served this with some cheese. It was delicious.
