Mom’s Famous Baked Potato Soup

I bought a new 8 qt crockpot  a few days before Thanksgiving when my newest crockpot wasn't on its last legs.  I wanted to see if potatoes would cook in this crockpot.  YES!  I cooked this soup on high and the potatoes were perfect at 4.5 hours.  LOVED this recipe. 
Mom’s Famous Baked Potato Soup

6 potatoes (peeled and cut bite-size)
About 1/2 onion, chopped
1 or 2 carrots, peeled & cut
4 chicken bouillon cubes
1 or 2 stalks of celery, chopped
1 tablespoon of parsley
5 cups of water
1 teaspoon of salt
Pepper to taste
1 (13 ounce) can of evaporated milk
Cornstarch for thickening (a few heaping spoonfuls, probably about 1/4 cup)
Tepid water for the cornstarch
Shredded cheese, crumbled bacon for topping

Put all the vegetables, the water, parsley, bouillon, salt, and pepper in the crock pot. Cover and cook on low 10-12 hours (or on high 4-5 hours). Stir in evaporated milk during last hour. Add thickening of cornstarch & water during last 10 minutes, stir until thickened (like 5 minutes for me). Serve with grated cheese and crumbled bacon.
