Ham and Potato Soup


3 1/2 cups peeled and diced potatoes

1/3 cup diced celery

1/3 cup finely chopped onion

3/4 cup diced cooked ham

3 1/4 cups water

2 tablespoons chicken bouillon granules

1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste

1 teaspoon ground white or black pepper, or
to taste

5 tablespoons butter

5 tablespoons all-purpose flour

2 cups milk


Mix the onions, celery, potatoes, water, and ham in a stockpot. Boil all for about 10 to 15 minutes, and cook the potatoes over medium heat until they are mild. Add salt and pepper to the chicken and stir the stock. Melt butter over medium-low heat in a separate saucepan.
Put the flour on heat and stir it for about a minute continuously until it is thick. Until all of the milk is added, slowly stir the dish to prevent crumbs. Until thick, continue stirring for about four to five minutes over medium-low heat until thick. Cook until heated, while stirring the mixture into the stockpot. Serve right away!
