As suggested by other reviewers, I jazzed mine up a bit, for fear of it being too bland. I added 7 cups of water, 3 medium sized ham hocks, along with the 2 cups cubed ham, 2 bay leaves, 1 Tbsp salt, 1 tsp pepper, 4 chicken bouillon cubes, and the leaves from the celery. I let it cook on high in my crock pot for 10 hours. I wished I could have let it cook on low for 18 hours or so as some reviewers suggested, but I just didn’t have the time. Luckily, I didn’t matter! Yummy! (Only a little salty – next time I’ll add only 1 tsp of salt with the ham hocks) It went great with some Jiffy cornbread, and passed the boyfriend test with flying colors! (He said it was BETTER than mom used to make!) I’m giving the recipe 3 stars due to the lack of spices. However the reviewers get 5 stars because I don’t think it would have been nearly as good without their recommendations. Overall it averages out at four stars.
