    Pierre Dance's Note:

    Another mystery recipe. I have no idea where it came from but it sure is good especially when served with corn sticks, hot from the oven. My Corn Sticks. Plan to serve the next day, it's much better reheated. Ham shanks have meat on them, hocks do not. If you have to use hocks add a cup or so of chopped cooked ham.

      This soup was great! I used a ham bone that I had in the freezer. I didn't have any garlic or dry mustard so I omitted them. It was still really tasty, I did add a couple of ham cubes at the end. Thanks for a great recipe.
