What a great soup!! The dill is a wonderful surprise and I have never used cream with ham. This recipe is sooo flavorful. Thanks so much for posting. I will be making this again. A keeper...=) !

Did not have a pressure cooker, so just did it on the stove top. Also started with boiling leftover ham bone in the 4 cups of water. I then removed the ham from the bone plus added 1 cup more of water because the water had boiled down. Also added 1 cup of chopped celery and 2 -3 tbsp of chicken boullion. It is the time of year when beans are plentiful and you can't keep up just eating them as a side. Seached. Vwola. Found this. Thanx.

thank you for this recipe. I needed something warm and creamy for here in central ny. I came upon this recipe. The soup was soooo good! I put some elbow maccaroni in it, which was suggested by another person that tried it. I put some sliced up carrots. I also used the half-and-half. My family loved it also. Nice!
