This is total comfort food and so easy to prepare in the crockpot. Serve it with some fried cornbread or some cornbread muffins to make a meal. Make this with fresh garden vegetables for a real treat.4 or 5 potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks 1 cup celery, chopped 1 medium onion, chopped 3 cups ham, cooked and cut into chunks 1/2 head cabbage, shredded or chopped 1 (1 pound) bag baby carrots (can use regular carrots) 1/2 teaspoon black pepper 1 large bay leaf 1/2 teaspoon celery seeds 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic 1 teaspoon salt 2 (14 ounce) cans chicken broth Add all the ingredients to the slow cooker or crockpot. Cover with the chicken broth. Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours. Remove bay leaf. Serve. Enjoy! Note: I actually thought this was better the second day than the first!
