Truly prize winning. Best ham soup ever!

Terrific, 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

I eliminated the pork sausage, that seemed a bit of overkill. Cooked all day on stove top, it was excellent.
