DIRECTIONS : 




1. In the beginning, place potatoes, ham, celery, carrots and onion In slow cooker. Generously season with salt and pepper then pour in chicken broth.




2. Okay now, you'll want to cover slow cooker and cook on high until potatoes are cooked through and fork tender, it takes around 4 to 5 hours. Lightly mash potatoes (they don’t need to be smooth).




3. Then you're going to get a small bowl and whisk in heavy cream and flour until flour is completely dissolved. Make sure to stir mixture into soup with sour cream.




4. Slow cooker needs to be coverd again. Immediately cook on high until soup is hot and creamy, it takes around 15 to 20 minutes.




5. The last step to make is to ladle soup into serving bowls. Serve hot & Enjoy!
