DIRECTIONS

  • Put ham bone or other meat into a very large stock pot and add water to within 2 inches of the top of the pot. Simmer for 40 minutes.
  • As the meat simmers add the onion, and the bay leaves and peppercorns in a teaball or cheesecloth bag, or just loose.
  • Remove ham bone from the pot to a large bowl and let cool until you can handle it, then cut off and dice the meat.
  • Add meat back into the pot and the potatoes and carrots. Boil gently for 15 minutes.
  • Add beans and savoury, if using, and simmer until all vegetables are done.
  • Check for salt, but ham and farmer sausage are salty meats so salt isn't usually needed.
  • Freeze what's left.
  • Note: I use a bit more potatoes than carrots, and even less beans.
