"Got a left-over ham bone? I do and this the recipe I'm going to use. This is "THE" perfect bean soup. A little different; makes a very hearty soup, full of good things. I've been making it for years. Vintage recipe, from the mystery book "Cooking School Murders." Prep time, of course, doesn't include soaking time for beans. You can use smoked ham hocks instead of a ham bone."

"Here's a helpful hint. To all of you who are reading this,and think it sounds great ( I do !),the Honey Baked Ham company sells ham shanks ! They are already cooked, have plenty of meat left on them, and are reasonably priced. There's just two of us at home, so being able to buy the shanks this way means we can try recipes like this one. I'm off to Honeybaked so that I can try this tomorrow. I'll review this recipe once I've made it."
