Total Time 8 hours 20 minutes


  • Approx 1kg Ham Hock fat trimmed off.
  • Approx 1.25kg pumpkin
  • 1 carrot finely chopped
  • 2 medium potatoes finely chopped
  • 2 sml parsnips finely chopped
  • 1 leek diced
  • 4 sml bay leaves
  • 2-3 cloves crushed garlic
  • Tbsp herb and garlic seasoning
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tbsp turmeric
  • 1-2 tbsp curry powder.
  • Pepper to taste
  • 3ltrs chicken stock
  • 1 tsp hot paprika
  • 8 splashes tobasco sauce
  • 2 tbsp gravy flour
  • 250 ml cream


  • Place all of the above ingredients except for cream n gravy flour into slow cooker on high for 6-7 hrs.
  • After this time add cream and gravy flour, remove ham hock and shred meat the bone n remove any excess fat n grissel. Then put back into SC.
  • I left on high for approx a further 1hr so soup thickens up.
  • Depending on how thick you like ur soups you may want to use less liquid and add more gravy flour at the end.
  • Serve and enjoy with your favourite bread.
  • ENJOY. ?


  • You may put more or less of the herbs n spices, depending on what flavour u want, but this is how I made it.
  • I used a 5.5lt slow cooker, u will need to use less ingredients if u have a smaller one n more if u wish in a bigger one.
