Crockpot Ham Chowder
Put ham in crockpot and cover with water...cook on med-high for 5 or so hours...then I filled the whole pot with potatoes cut into cubes and 3-4 garlic cloves chopped. (Fresh chopped up garlic adds soooo much flavor, so much better than just seasoning!)
I added a little broccoli to cook with the potatoes, then put them in the blender with half the potatoes out of the crockpot so they would be completely blended... (and my kids might not notice them!!)
Blend up half your potatoes in the blender so your chowder is creamy, but good to still have half the potatoes not blended so your soup has big potatoes chunks! Then pour all that back into crockpot....
Added chicken boullion (I use wild trees organic product for any seasonings I need to add) Also added 1 cup parmesan cheese, and about 4 oz of cream cheese.
3-4 garlic cloves
5-6 potatoes, diced
salt/pepper to taste
Add vegtables...broccoli or corn if you want
My kids loved this...the ham just fell apart and was so good. My husband even ate it again the next day which says a lot for how picky he is!! :)
