Ham, Potatoes, Cabbage, Tomatoes and Herb Soup Recipe



When that rainy day or cool weather comes, nothing warms me up better than this comforting cabbage and ham soup.
The best thing about this soup is it's not difficult to make and feeds a hungry bunch!  This is comfort food, if you want to make something that will linger in your mind this is it!
1 cup carrots
2 stalks chopped celery
2 cups cubed ham
1 head cabbage cut into wedges
2 plum tomatoes cubed
1 small 16 oz can diced tomatoes
you can add 1 chopped onion if you like (not a fan of them)
4 potatoes peeled and cubed
1 tablespoon each chopped herbs basil, oregano, rosemary, parsley
2 tablespoons minced garlic
salt, pepper and cayenne to taste
water
3 cups chicken broth for heartier flavor or just use all water

Fill a 5 quart large pot with water half the pan full (not using chicken broth add 3 more cups). Add the broth, cabbage, tomatoes, potatoes, ham, celery, carrots, fresh herbs, garlic and spices. After adding all the vegetables if there is more space add more water to fill leaving 3 inches below top of 5 quart pot. Simmer on low for around 1 1/2 hours.  You can also do this in a crock pot on low 8 to 10 hours adjusting to the size, leave 3 inches from the top of the crock pot as above instructions.
