For those who have burned out all the taste buds on very spicey recipies, this recipe is not for you....for those who want an excellent soup for those chilly fall and winter nights this is it. I doubled the recipe, and used one can of diced italian flavored tomatoes, and one can of the reg. type. I also added some chopped celery. The ham bone was quite meaty. This soup was so good I didn't even need to add any salt or pepper!! Jerri

To those who referred to the salt content, that is going to happen since it's ham. I would suggest using chicken broth instead of bullion. However, I think if I decide to make this, I will be sure to use twice as much water as broth I use. I don't worry about it being watered down too much as there will be plenty of flavor from the broth and ham combination.

Yummy!! Perfect for busy moms. Great way to stretch that left over ham. I added some carrots & potato in stead of just potato. The Tomato add a perfect flavor. I used reg canned chick broth, my ham & ham bone was a hillshire farm and those never seemed to be as salty to me. I also used garlic and bayleaf. No green pepper on hand but I am sure it would taste even better with green pepper. We had french bread with it. It was hit and I have 6 kids that loved it. Thank You!! Will be passed down to generations.

I used this recipe for a nice, meaty ham bone I had left over from a Hillshire Farms spiral ham. It was very easy and delicious. I only had a large sweet potato on hand so used that instead of the potatoes and it really added a wonderful flavor. Also added an extra can of beans (pinto), a couple of bay leaves, some garlic powder, and a touch of Golden Sherry toward the end. Wonderful soup!

AWESOME. I used a really meaty ham bone for this soup. I added chopped carrots, celery and a can of green peas in addition to everything else the recipe called for. After reading the reviews I opted for low sodium chicken bouillon. The soup was seasoned perfectly. I had to cook the soup longer because of my additions... overall I cooked it for about 8-9 hours on low. Absolutely fabulous! 12/09: I actually bought and baked a ham yesterday solely so that I could make this soup with the leftover ham bone today (although the ham was delicious, I was really craving this soup)!

OK, I gotta story. Anyone who is familiar with the show "Everybody Loves Raymond" can surely appreciate this because with the exception of my in-laws living 5 minutes away & not across the street.....they ARE Frank & Marie, and hubby & I are Ray & Debra. I'm not at all kidding, really. The in-laws called last night 4 TIMES, not leaving a message, and then came over to give me a.....yes a ham bone. Not only did I think the worst, as my husband is (again) in Monterey on business, but..it was just a hambone. Anyway, I was able to make the soup with it, and it turned out pretty good. I subbed green beans for the peppers, and if I make it again, I will add some sort of pasta. Nice & low cal. Thanks Charlene. If ever you get a chance to see the show...do, you'll get a peek into my life (HA) ;)

This is one of the easiest soup recipes I have ever tried. The family loved it and I now have another wintry night soup. Very hearty and tasty. Would highly recommend to friends.

This recipe was AWESOME! I didn't have a slow cooker, so I just put everything into a 12 quart soup pot and brought it to a boil. Then I reduced it to low and simmered for about 4 hours, stirring occasionally. The ham just fell off of the bone! I modified slightly, 4 boullion instead of 6, and 5 cups of water. I also added some diced leftover ham that was in the fridge. I sent this recipe to everyone. Yum!
