Ham and Potato Soup

I found this soup on Pinterest and made it today while I was home with a cold.  It was hearty, delicious, and received David's stamp of approval.  The original recipe is here:  http://www.wwrecipes.net/ham-potato-soup.html and includes nutrition information.  I altered it just slightly to fit our taste.

7 c diced red potatoes with skin on (about 1 inch pieces)
1 medium yellow onion, diced
2 large carrots, sliced
2-3 c. ham, diced
5 c. hot water
1 T L.B. Jamison's Soup Base, chicken flavor
1 T dried parsley
Fresh ground pepper to taste
1 c. milk (1%)
1/2 c. light sour cream

Combine the first 8 ingredients in a 3 quart crock pot.  Cook on low 8 hours.  Whisk the milk and sour cream together to eliminate lumps.  Add to soup in crock pot and continue to cook on low another 15-30 minutes.  We had ours with cornbread on the side.
