    Chef Skie's Note:

    Hearty, thick soup that's a perfect something to do with your leftover holiday ham and bones. Use two bones with plenty of meat on them instead of the ham hocks. I make it every time we have two ham bones in the freezer and once I take most of the meat off, the dogs get the bones for a special treat, so they love when I make this too! Found it on the Food Network site, but I've tweaked it a bit.

      This is a very tasty soup - I used leftover ham steak instead of ham hocks so I subbed beef stock for the water because it would not have the benefit of the ham bone to make a rich soup - It worked well. I made it two days before I wanted to seve it and kept it in the fridge to allow the flavors to mellow.
