Got everything ready? Perfect! Now, let’s move on to the cooking instructions.
In your slow cooker, combine the diced potatoes, ham, onion, garlic, thyme, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine.
Pour the chicken broth over the ingredients in the slow cooker, making sure everything is covered.
Set your slow cooker to low and let it cook for 7-8 hours, or set it to high and let it cook for 4-5 hours. The longer cooking time allows the flavors to develop and the potatoes to become perfectly tender.
About 30 minutes before serving, stir in the heavy cream. This will give your soup a rich, creamy texture.
Continue cooking on low for another 30 minutes, or until the soup is heated through.
Before serving, taste the soup and adjust the seasonings if necessary.
Ladle the soup into bowls, garnish with chopped parsley, and serve hot.
And there you have it – your Slow Cooker Ham and Potato Soup is ready to be devoured! This hearty, comforting soup is a testament to the magic that can happen when you let simple ingredients and flavors slow-cook to perfection. So, gather around the table, ladle out some warmth, and let’s celebrate the homely goodness of American comfort food. Enjoy!
