This was the best ham I've eaten in a very long time. I made this for a Christmas party and everyone loved it. Then for an added touch, I kept the ham bone, making sure it had some meat on it. Then I got the 10 Bean Soup mix, threw away the mix packet (Don't need it.) and soaked the beans overnight. Then I washed them the next day, threw them into a large pot, added 8 cups of water and the ham bone, plus extra ham, skin and some ham fat. Simmered it for about a good 3 hours and made a pot of really good bean and ham soup. It thickens as it cooks. Then once it's done, I took out the leftover fat and obviously the bone. (I guess you could give the bone to the dog?) You can add celery, peas, onions, spices, whatever you want. I just used water, beans and the ham and yum, yum!! The water soaks up all those fruit juices and brown sugar that's left on the meat and bone. Thanks, Sue, for a wonder and newly traditional Christmas meal. I will make this next year for Christmas or maybe earlier and of course, my bean soup. :)
