      This reminds me of my gradmas soup. I left out the sugar and the potatoes and this makes an easy and great tasting meal for the atkins or the south beach diet. I also added carving scraps from the ham. a very satisfying soup.

      This was very good! The only changes I made to it were I added a bay leaf to the soup and left out the potatoes. It had a great flavor. I liked the fact that this recipe called for the hambones to be cooked with onions and enough water to cover bones. I think that is the special touch that gave this soup it's TASTINESS!! Two thumbs up!!! I will never use my bean soup recipe again!!!!
