Misleading and maybe even useless recipe. First of all breaking up a ham bone requires a bone saw, so good luck if you bone is bigger than the pot. Next, broth needs to be cooked separately, so that you can strain it of bits after you cook the bone. Then you'll want to cool it to skim the fat off the top.
Using this recipe as a guide I prepared a rich and delicious lima bean soup. I used 1-3/4 cups of dried lima beans, 1-1/2 cups of water plus one 14-oz can of chicken broth and two cloves of garlic. In addition to the ham bone,onion, salt and pepper called for in the original recipe I added two cloves of garlic and followed the recipe directions. When I opened the pressure cooker after 25 minutes the result was a thick, rich and delicious bean dish. I served it over rice and even my picky kids loved it.
