  • 1 stalk celery, cleaned, peeled and sliced
  • 2 white onions, diced

  • cornstarch
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • In large saucepan, combine all ingredients except cheese, milk and cornstarch.
  • Fill pan with water, just covering vegetables and ham, cover pan.
  • Allow veggies to get almost tender and then add milk.
  • When mixture begins to boil again, make cornstarch adding it with 1/2 cup (125 ml) cold water.
  • Add to boiling soup, slowly, while stirring constantly. This is not intended to make it thick, just not quite so thin.
  • Reduce heat and start adding cubed cheese, stirring constantly.
  • Once cheese is melted and the soup is seasoned to taste, it is ready to be served.
I just made this soup up experimenting one day. I use different veggies or not as many on occasion. Some times you may need to increase the cornstarch to make the soup a little less thin. I go by sight and to each his/her own. My family loves it and that is why I make such a big batch....so we don't argue over the left-overs!
