Adjust Servings

Original recipe yields 6 servings

Directions

  1. Cut ham off bone in bite-size pieces, reserving bone. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a skillet over medium heat and fry ham pieces in hot butter until lightly browned, about 4 minutes.
  2. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large saucepan; cook and stir onion, carrots, and garlic in the hot butter until softened and onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Pour undrained beans into vegetables, add ham and reserved ham bone, and pour in water to make soup your desired thickness. Stir bay leaves into soup and season with salt and black pepper.
  3. Bring soup to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer for 25 minutes. Remove ham bone and bay leaves before serving.

Remember... Adding salt to beans before the last 5-10 minutes of cooking will make them tough.

I used a ham hock which I boiled in enough water to cover it. I added the carrots, garlic, beans, bay leaves and onion to this while cooking. When the meat was falling off the bone I chopped it up, adding it back to the pot and also kept the bone in. I kept this on a slow simmer for an hour. I added the salt and pepper just before serving. We liked the soup but I think I will even try adding some diced potatoes to this.

Wow! Great recipe, Christy! I thawed out leftover ham that I had from Easter in the freezer, but I didn't have a ham bone. Since I wanted the soup to still have flavor I used chicken broth instead of the water called for. Also I added some chopped up potatoes like Cathy G. suggested. Yum! Will definitely make again with the leftovers next Easter!
