- 3 russet potatoes, peeled and diced
- 1 onion, diced
- 1 stalk celery, diced
- 2 carrots, chopped
- 3 cups chicken broth

- 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
- 1 cup milk
- In a stockpot add the potatoes, onion, celery, carrots, chicken broth, and salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a boil, then reduce to medium and cook until potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes. Stir in diced ham.
- Meanwhile, in a separate saucepan, melt the butter over medium-low heat. Whisk in the flour and cook, stirring constantly, until thick. Slowly stir in milk, then cook, stirring constantly, until thick, about 5 minutes.

Make sure your potatoes are tender but not to the point of falling apart. Nice big cubes of hame go great with this soup.
