Country Ham Bone Soup

From: Here

1 baked country ham bone
3 quarts water
1 c. sliced carrots
1 c. sliced celery
1/2 c. chopped onion
1 (10 oz.) pkg. frozen whole kernel corn
1 (10 oz.) pkg. frozen lima beans
1 (16 oz.) can black eyed peas, undrained
1 (16 oz.) can tomatoes, undrained
2 c. cooked elbow macaroni
Salt & pepper to taste
Place ham bone in large soup kettle. Add water; simmer 30 minutes. Remove bone and remove meat from bone. Chop meat and return to broth. Add carrot, celery and onion; simmer 30 minutes. Add remaining vegetables; simmer 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Add macaroni; season with salt and pepper. Heat to serving temperature.


Thumbs up! I needed a way to use my ham bone after I made a ham, and we're not huge bean eaters, so I found this soup recipe and thought it sounded like a winner. Filling, delicious, and easy to make! Next time I make a ham I'll definitely be making this soup the next day again! I highly recommend this soup!
