Posted on 01 September 2017

When the wind is howling and the sky is dark, simmer up a comforting pot of potato soup!


  • 1 ham bone, with visible meat
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 4 cups water
  • ½ tsp celery seeds
  • ½ tsp white pepper
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 5 medium red potatoes, cut into 1" cubes
  • ½ cup (1 stick) butter
  • ½ cup flour
  • 2 cups half and half or milk
  • 1 - 15oz can corn, drained and rinsed
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp Amoretti® Natural Ham Hock (Roasted Ham) Type Extract W.S.


  1. Place ham bone, onion, water, celery seeds, white and black peppers in a dutch oven.
  2. Bring to a boil over medium heat and simmer for 30 minutes or until meat easily comes off the bone with a fork.
  3. Shred ham from the bone, discard any fat, and return meat to the pot.
  4. Add diced potatoes and return to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are tender.
  5. While potatoes are cooking, in a medium saucepan melt butter over medium heat, being careful not to brown.
  6. Add flour, stirring constantly until well incorporated.
  7. Bring heat to medium-high and gradually stir in the half and half until creamy, thick and bubbly, stirring constantly being careful not to scorch.
  8. Once it thickly coats a spoon, remove from heat.
  9. When the potatoes are tender, stir in the sauce mixture, corn, garlic, and Ham Hock Extract.
  10. Let simmer over medium heat, stirring constantly, until soup reaches the desired consistency.
  11. Add milk to adjust if needed.
For those rainy and cold days, creamy Ham Bone Potato Soup is the perfect meal to warm you up!
