      Some older and more simple recipes still remain the best...very tasty. I did heed Bobtail's advice about simmering the pork hocks for an extra 30 minutes or so before adding the other ingredients. Thanks, Cindytc, for sharing a passed-down recipe.

      DH and I have just over the last year or so been introduced to lentils and we love them. This recipe is great and so easy to prepare. I think DH has eaten the majority of this soup and saying each time he gets some, This stuff is good! LOL! The only thing I would do differently next time is to simmer the hocks for about 30 minutes or longer before adding the other ingredients, as my lentils got a little mushier than I would like. This is a keeper! Thanks Clndytc!
