      This is the best!! I followed your directions exactly and wouldn't change a thing. The beans were very tender. The soup was rich and creamy and had the most wonderful ham flavor. The ham bone really makes a difference. Thanks Nurse Di.

      This was absolutely wonderful. Smells great cooking, tastes even better. I couldn't find a ham bone, so I used one of those packages of ham cubes (real ham, just cut in cubes). Still tasted awesome.

      I have made this soup twice since finding this recipe site. We think it is the best and I have tried quite a few bean soup recipes. So creamy and thick. I used the ham bone but it wasn't all that meaty so I added some chopped up leftover ham. Wonderful and thanks for sharing this recipe.
