Faithf 5y agoTruly prize winning. Best ham soup ever!
Jwcooley 6y agoTerrific, I eliminated the sausage. I used 2 large ham hocks (smoked) rather than the ham bone. Added a bay leaf and substitued thyme for the oregano. Took about 3 hours and was fantastic, I'll make it again
G4Jeffrey 8y agoI eliminated the pork sausage, that seemed a bit of overkill. Cooked all day on stove top, it was excellent.
