I know that there are a TON of recipes out there for soup made with the leftover hambone. Most have beans. This yummy recipe does not. It's got a lot of veggies but you could certainly add the bean of your choice if you wanted to. This turned out so good. And it was SO easy!
3 large carrots, sliced
3 stalks celery, diced
1 medium onion, diced
2-3 large potatoes, diced (I used unpeeled
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon dried parsley
2 bay leaves
2 large yellow squash, diced
2 large zucchini, diced
2 - 3 cups leftover ham
salt and pepper to taste
Place ham bone in a large stock pot and cover with water. Boil 45 minutes.
Remove bone from water, cool then take meat off the bone.
Add the veggies to the pot.
Season with salt and black pepper.
Cook until veggies are tender.
Add meat to pot. Bring to a simmer and allow to heat through.
Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!
