    This is a wonderful old recipe from the Sunset Crockery Cookbook from 1992. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve made this. It’s definitely a keeper!

    Great stuff! I made this on the stove instead of the crockpot. I let it simmer for 1 hour before removing the ham hock. Loved the little bit or tangy flavor from the lemon peel and dill. A keeper soup recipe for sure. Thanx!

    Wonderful soup! I used 3 cups of chicken broth as I had frozen it in that quantity. I cooked the smoked ham hock & potatoes as stated on low for 7hrs. Removed ham hock to remove meat & placed in frig. The stock & potatoes I defatted the next morning. Then cooked the potatoes a few more hours as they were not quite tender. Then followed the recipe from there. We loved the dill & between the 2 of us there was not a drop left. I plan on making this again "very" soon. Thanks Hey Jude for a keeper!
