This is a great way to use up a leftover ham bone. This is our favorite version of this soup. Hope you enjoy it.

This was really good, just the right amount of water to make the soup a good texture. I used some diced thick ham slices instead of the ham bone and it worked fine. I found I didn't need to add extra salt, since the ham tends to be salty enough already. Thanks for sharing this, momstar.
