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.
Would have probably been a good soup IF the recipe had told you that you would probably boil off all your water with the ham bone in the first step if the pot wasn't covered. Also, the recipe didn't state exactly when to add the diced ham. Had to add 4+ cups of more water before boiling the potato halves so that there would be enough liquid to cook them in. Grrrr....(posted corrections to the recipe for others)
First time I ever made soup from left over ham bone. This recipe was EASY and delicious.
It's a great base for a wonderful soup I added baby portobellos, scallions, and chives! So amazing I gave it four stars because personally before my additions it's lacking but that's my opinion. I added pix of my soup too!
We used chicken and tomato bouillon instead of the ham bone and there were no left overs. Best potato soup I have ever had.
This is the most delicious soup! We had a massive ham that just wouldn't finish, and since I detest throwing things out, I decided to try this soup. It is creamy and rich and wonderful! I have stuck half of it in the freezer and the rest is just being demolished! Thanks for a great recipe!
This recipe is really the only reason we eat Ham for Christmas and Easter...
The whole family loved it and I added 1 head of coliflower cut up. Thanks
