" Not Your Average" Ham & Bean Soup!

Recipe by jrtfan
READY IN: 1hr 20mins
SERVES: 8-10




  • Place ham bone, onion, celery, carrots and water in a large stock pot.
  • Bring to a boil and reduce heat to simmer, skimming foam occasionally.
  • When meat is starting to separate from the bone, remove bone and allow to cool.
  • Add bouillon, I used Ham Flavored Better Than Bouillon, garlic salt and pepper.
  • Add beans, whatever kind you like, tomatoes and continue to simmer.
  • Remove ham from bone and return ham to soup mixture along with cubed ham.
  • At this point I recommend you taste test the soup for seasonings, but be careful, it doesn't bite your tongue, it grabs your throat!
  • I served this with corn bread and fresh fried potatoes with bacon & onion. It gets better after a day or two in the refrigerator.
