This recipe was great! I cooked it for my mother and sister and they seemed to enjoy it on a nice cold day. I might suggest to let it cool before you eat it ... of course ir was a little hot. I really recommend it for a small family dinner.

Very good. I love to cook soups and can them but this one didn't make it to the canner. We ate it all. I added hot sauce to my bowls of soup.

i liked this soup but I added a few things to it. It need more ham, and more flavor. I will make it again but a little more.
