Southern Ham Bone Soup
"An old-fashioned classic, this easy ham bone soup recipe is a nourishing and satisfying supper that’s full of flavor! Smoky and rich, the homemade soup comes together quickly on the stovetop or in the slow cooker (no soaking the beans). Delicious with a side of cast iron skillet cornbread! A version of this simple ham bone soup recipe dates back to Colonial Virginia (and beyond!), where home cooks repurposed leftover ham scraps and leftover ham bones to flavor soups and stews. This practice continues today — especially when we have leftover Christmas ham or Easter ham — because a ham and bean soup is both economical and delicious!"
