A very hearty and warming soup my husband loved while stationed on the USS Independence. Since he was a Medic he was buddies with everyone and got the recipe from one of the cooks before he left. He held on to the recipe for years.

crittermom17 , 8 years agoLadyJay, don't ever lose this recipe. It is a WINNER. It most definitely will be on my favorites list. I didn't have the ham or ham bone, but used Goya's ham flavored concentrate and it was still delicious. Thanks for sharing.

wwiggins , 8 years agoThis is a very harty dish that sticks with you. It's great for lunch on a cold day. I found that a crock pot, slow cooker works quite nicely with this recipe. I only added some salt and pepper during the preparation. This recipe also works with Lima beans. Ahoy Mate, try it, you'll like it!
princessfiona , 8 years agoThis sounds wonderful I am looking forward to making it.
