Very good we added another can of beans and 2 ears of fresh corn.

Don't throw that ham bone out! If you can't use it soon, just freeze it! I had about 4 cups of homemade chicken stock that had been hanging out in my freezer for quite a long time, so I decided to free up some space and use it in this soup - along with 3 cups of water. It turned out quite flavorful, without being overly salty. The recipe didn't specify to drain the beans, but I did anyway since that liquid is full of sodium.

Leave a comment...You are making ''Ham Broth" , the same way you make homemade chicken broth. Just add onion, carrots and celey to the ham bone...cook longer about 2 hours. That's your "broth" for this soup. It's so good! I use mine for homemade pea soup. Need to try this one next time. Yummm.

NEVER EVER use water when making soup. Always use broth of some sort. I always us chicken stock/broth when making most of my soups. Broths add so much more flavor to your soups!!!!!!

I never make any kind of soup with WATER. There are so many kinds of broths and stocks (also Better Than Bullion has a ham flavor) to use. Broths make the soups SO MUCH than water!!!
