    Kmac's Note:

    This is the bean soup my mom used to make whenever we'd finished a ham -- using the ham bone makes a wonderful stock for the soup. Enjoy!

      This was very, very good. I didn't make the 12 serving portion because I didn't have that much cooked ham, only the bone. Didn't use carrots because I just don't like them for some reason. I also cut down on the canned tomatoes on any soup recipe. And I had cans of beans, so rather than buy the dried beans I used those - couldn't tell the difference at all. And I did blend about 1/3rd of the soup and return it to the rest in the pot. I will make this again. One note...on step #3 it says to remove the bone....never said when to put it in. JS
