This is the highlight of my 'after' Easter cooking....that ham bone that is in the fridge after most of the ham is eaten. I just can't get myself to throw it out without making a pot of this soup!! I use canned beans in place of the dry, it just makes making the soup so much easier and the beans are always cooked just right. Be careful when adding salt, if the ham was salty the soup may not need any. Hope you like my recipe!!
