Add potatoes, onions (leeks), celery and parsley to a large pot. Add stock until vegetables are covered with liquid plus a bit more on top. Cover pot. Bring to a boil and reduce to simmering. Cook until potatoes are soft enough to begin to "mush".
Mash with potato masher for chunkier soup. For more pureed soup use an immersion blender or pour all ingredients into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
Thin with cream or milk, if desired. Add ham. Rewarm the soup in the pot as needed.
Add salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with chopped leek greens (or parsley) if desired.
