  1. Combine the potatoes, celery, onion, ham and water *(I use homemade broth instead of water and granules.) in a stockpot. Bring to a boil, then cook over medium heat until potatoes are tender, about 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in the chicken bouillon, salt and pepper.
  2. **If canning, stop at this point
  3. Process in pressure canner 90 minutes for qts.
  4. if not canning, continue here. Rewarm canned soups and continue here for each quart. I use the same amount. It stretches my soup without compromising flavor or quality.
  5. In a separate saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat. Whisk in flour with a fork, and cook, stirring constantly until thick, about 1 minute. Slowly stir in milk as not to allow lumps to form until all of the milk has been added. Continue stirring over medium-low heat until thick, 4 to 5 minutes.
  6. Stir the milk mixture into the stockpot, and cook soup until heated through. Serve immediately.
