Many people had ham for the holidays. I know we did. I froze the ham bone after we had carved most of the meat of, leaving some smaller bits and pieces. I wasn’t in the mood for cooking with ham after having so much of it. Today, however, I decided I would make a ham bone soup.
I scoured the internet for some recipes. After looking over some recipes I realized that you can really do whatever you want with your ham bone. Here are just a few simple suggestions of ingredients you could add:
- canned tomatoes
- bell peppers
The list could go on and on as there are 100’s of variations you could choose.
