This is a simple soup that I adapted from a few recipes. I make the ham broth by covering a leftover ham bone with 12 cups of water and simmering it for a few hours. I chill it overnight and remove the fat. Feel free to add some of the leftover ham to the soup. I add the salt after the soup is done because the ham broth might be salty enough. Great with some nice crusty bread.
