    A rich hearty soup great for left over holiday ham. I use the bone from the ham to make the stock. DS said it was the best soup he ever had!

      This was delicious, and very rich. I made the stock from the ham bone, and just kept adding water after it had boiled down for awhile (I probably ended up using 6-8 cups overall). It made for a very rich base. Also, I took the advice of a previous review and sauteed the onion and garlic in butter beforehand, and it was fantastic! I also added black pepper and chili flakes to spice it up a bit - a wonderful recipe, will make again. Perfect for using up leftover ham on the bone.

      Very good soup. I will make again. The ony thing I would do differently will be to saute the onion and garlic in the butter to tone down the onion flavors as I thought the onion overpowered the flavor of the ham.
