READY IN: 2hrs
Recipe by JackieOhNo

After a holiday dinner, when I have served a ham, I retain the ham bone to make this soup. It has become part of the whole holiday tradition, and is true comfort food.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large soup pot, combine water, peas, broth, ham bone, marjoram, pepper, and bay leaf. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
  2. Remove ham bone and let cool. When you are able to handle it, cut meat off the bone and dice. Discard bone (or donate to the family dog). Add diced ham to soup pot.
  3. Stir in carrots, celery, and onion. Return to a boil; reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 30 minutes more, until vegetables are tender. Discard bay leaf.
