Good start. I brown a couple slices of chopped up bacon, then cook onion, a couple cloves of minced garlic and a chopped carrot in the bacon grease. I put this in the crock pot with the smallest shank-end ham I can find (but I love the idea of using a honey-baked ham bone.. I'll definitely try that) along with 2 outer leaves of a head of romaine lettuce, and about a teaspoon of ground black pepper. I let it cook in the crock pot on high for about 4-6 hrs, remove the ham and use my stick blender to smooth it all out. I cut up any ham left on the bone and put it back in the soup after blending, taste for salt and pepper and it's ready to eat with some crusty sour dough bread!
