This is one of my favorite soup recipes from my mom! It's a hearty soup that will stick to your bones on these icy cold non-Grenada days! haha welcome to the USA in winter huh? hehe

3 cups cubed ham or 1 cup thinly sliced Smithfield ham

8 cups peeled, chopped potatoes (4 lg potatoes)

8 tablespoons butter

2 cups chopped onion (l onion)

8 cups water

6 ham bouillion cubes ( Knors) or use (8 tsp ham base)

Salt and Pepper to taste

2 cups cream (heavy whipping cream or half and half) or milk

1 cup of the Jiffy corn muffin mix.

In large pot melt butter and sauté onion. Add ham and cook a few more minutes. Add potatoes and the 8 cups water along with the ham base. Cook until potatoes are cooked.

Add the 1 cup Jiffy corn mix into the 2 cups cream to dissolve first. Then add to the potatoe, ham pot and stir. This thickens up the soup just perfectly.

Add cream about ½ hour to 1 hour before you eat and heat up on warm.

Most important ingredients for the soup when serving is:

Sprinkle bacon bits and chopped scallions in the individual bowls when serving eat and enjoy along with corn muffins or regular hot rolls

I made this soup tonight and it was a big hit. So delicious! I used chicken base instead of ham (couldn't find it) and it worked out well. Thanks for posting...I now have a new yummy soup added to my collection.
