Chowder

2 pounds new potatoes, peeled and diced
2 leeks, washed, trimmed (white part only), cut into bite-sized pieces
2 sweet onions, chopped
1 stalk celery, sliced (optional)
1 tbsp. fresh minced parsley
1 quart chicken broth
1 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
2 cups scaled half-and-half
2 tbsp. butter
1/4 cup chives
1/2 pound bacon, crisp and broken in pieces.

Combine all ingredients except cream, butter, chives and bacon in a large slow-cooker. Cook on low 10 hours. During the last hour of cooking, add the cream and butter.
