    Leslie in Texas's Note:

    I got this last year at the website.It's from the April 2000 issue of Bon Apetit. It's a hearty soup, great for chilly evenings! Serve with crusty bread or a good cornbread and a side salad, if you wish.One of my sons likes a few drops of Tabasco sauce in his! To make it lower fat, I simmer the ham hocks in the chicken broth the day before, remove the ham hocks and refrigerate the stock and ham hocks separately. The next day I skim off the congealed fat from the surface of the broth,cut the meat off the bones, and heat the stock back up and proceed with the soup.
