I love you, Renee and your Grandma B! This recipe is an awesome base for my tweaking and I will be making this again in the not-too-distant future. For those out there who found the soup too greasy, salty or bland, here are some tips to help you along the way.
1)Don't use a ham hock, which tends to be too salty. Use a bone-in ham steak.
2)Sautee your ham to draw out those yummy juices and sugars.
3)Sautee your mirepoix in E.V.O.O., seasoning salt and Mrs. Dash.
4)Use 4C broth, 4C water and add a wee bit more salt and Mrs. Dash
5)Ham bone and 2 bay leaves in soup. VERY integral.
I hope these tips are useful. Drop me a line if they are...bon appetit!!
