DIRECTIONS

  • In a 3-qt.
  • or larger electric slow cooker, combine potatoes, onion, ham hock, dill weed, lemon peel, white pepper, and broth.
  • Cover and cook at low setting until ham hock and potatoes are very tender when pierced (7 1/2 to 8 hours).
  • Lift out ham hock and let stand until cool enough to handle.
  • Meanwhile, remove about 1 cup of the potatoes with a little of the broth; whirl in a blender or food processor until pureed and then return the puree to the crock-pot.
  • In a small bowl, mix cornstarch and cream; blend into potato mixture.
  • Increase cooker heat setting to high.
  • Remove and discard fat and bone from ham; tear meat into bite-size pieces and stir into soup.
  • Cover and cook, stirring 2 or 3 times, for 20 more minutes.
  • Garnish with dill sprigs, if desired.
