"I used my ham bone and some of the leftover ham from Easter to make this bean soup. It was fantastic. A great way to get the most out of your ham. I will definitely make this soup again."

"I had thrown our Easter ham bone in the freezer with some of the smaller pieces of ham and pulled it out this weekend to make this ham and bean soup. It was really tasty. I took some to my dad and he thought it was pretty good too. It wasn’t as good as mom’s but pretty close."
