Great stuff! I made this on the stove instead of the crockpot. I let it simmer for 1 hour before removing the ham hock. Loved the little bit or tangy flavor from the lemon peel and dill. A keeper soup recipe for sure. Thanx!
Wonderful soup! I used 3 cups of chicken broth as I had frozen it in that quantity. I cooked the smoked ham hock & potatoes as stated on low for 7hrs. Removed ham hock to remove meat & placed in frig. The stock & potatoes I defatted the next morning. Then cooked the potatoes a few more hours as they were not quite tender. Then followed the recipe from there. We loved the dill & between the 2 of us there was not a drop left. I plan on making this again "very" soon. Thanks Hey Jude for a keeper!
This is one of the best-tasting, good lookin, and so-easy-to-make soups. Both my husband and 19-year-old daughter said, "This is a keeper!" Said daughter: "This is a soup you'd have in a fine dining restaurant." (She's right; we frequent fine restaurants, and this soup is better than most we've had out.) Thanks for the recipe - this is going into our family recipe collection!
The kids and even Dad loved this one.
