1 1/2 pounds
smoked ham shanks
yellow onion, chopped
carrots, thinly sliced
1 1/4 teaspoons
1 (14.5 ounce) can
ground black pepper to taste
vinegar, or more to taste
Really good soup, and the timing in the recipe is perfect. The vegetables were tender but not mushy or overcooked and the lentils were cooked perfectly as well. I did not use the shanks as directed since I had leftover ham I needed to use up so I used chicken broth and part water instead. I have no doubt the ham shanks and ham broth would be even more flavorful. I will try that next time!
