3 cups water
3 cups potatoes, peeled and diced
2 1/2 cups broccoli (I use frozen)
1 onion, chopped
1 cup carrots, sliced
1 cup celery, sliced
Put above ingredients in crock pot and cook on high 4 hours or low for 6-7 hours. About 1/2 hour before serving add:
3 cups pre-cooked ham, diced
For white sauce melt 1/2 cup butter in sauce pan on medium heat. Slowly stir in 1/2 cup flour. Stir till smooth (approx 2 min.) Slowly add 4 cups milk. Boil and stir until thickened (approx 2 min).
3 cups shredded cheddar cheese (I like to mix my cheese in with the white sauce when it's done, but you can add it to the soup separately too.
