This is a delicious winter soup! I didn't make it exactly as written, so here are my differences. I used one smoked pork shank (I'm not entirely sure how this differs from a ham hock). I also left out the potatoes out of preference and the parsley because I didn't have any. I used only two cans of beans, and one of stewed tomatoes (no salt added). Other variations: one tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper, four cloves garlic, minced, and a diced onion. For water, I used two cans full. This was not enough to cover the pork, but enough to make a good soup. I added cooked shell macaroni at the end (about 1/3 lb), and a handful of fresh basil, since I had it.
