Cook celery, carrots, potatoes and onions for 18 to 20 minutes in the 5 cups of water. Add the ham, butter and salt and pepper to taste. Combine the flour and milk, shake till no lumps remain. Stir this into the vegetable mixture, stirring constantly. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.

Yum, I love potato soup and I am sure it would taste so much better with ham added! Sounds delish!
