What kind of Ham should I use?

 I love to use leftover holiday ham, including the ham bone, for soups. But if you do not have easy acess to ham then getting a ham steak is a great way to go. You can easily find a 1/2 – 3/4 inch ham steak to cube and enjoy in this soup.  Lunch meat ham will work as well if you have them slice it thick (at least 1/2 inch thick).

Do I have to peel the potatoes?

In order to get a smooth creamy soup I would recommend peeling the potatoes. Potato Skin is great for you so if you prefer to keep it in the soup it will be ok just may change your end texture.
