Almost the end of August already?

That means it's been a LONG time since I last posted and it means soup season is coming very, very soon!

I know the majority won't agree with me, but I LOVE fall and winter!

Cold weather in Minnesota equals comfort food, which is my favorite! I can't get enough of soups, oven meals and cooler weather!

Today's recipe is one of those comfort food meals! I made this soup last spring using the leftover ham bone from our Easter brunch and decided to save the recipe to post now.

I usually make this soup after a holiday like Christmas, Thanksgiving or Easter, but it's really great anytime you happen to have a ham bone leftover.

The flavor in this soup is quite incredible. That flavor that comes from the bone and the ham drippings is bold, deep and oh so good!

I do not add any salt unless it's needed just before serving.

The bone, drippings and meat usually provide enough salt and flavor for the whole batch. Just check out the broth in the photos, the color is wonderful!

Not only is this recipe comfort food, but it's also a childhood favorite!

I remember my mom making it after holidays just like I do! We always looked forward to help making it, and also eating it!

Ham Bone and Potato Soup

by Sheena
Ingredients
  • 1 leftover ham bone plus juices and extra meat from cooking
  • water
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 6 large potatoes, peeled and diced
  • black pepper, if needed
Instructions
In a large soup pot, add ham bone, meat and juices. Add water until ham bone is covered. Season with black pepper, if desired.

Cook over medium high heat for 20 minutes, then add onion. Cook for another 15 minutes, then remove ham bone and set aside.

Add potatoes, cook for another 10-12 minutes until potatoes are tender. Meanwhile, pull excess ham from the bone and add it to the soup as the potatoes are cooking. Remove from heat and serve.

For slow cooker option, follow directions as above, but cook for 2-3 hours on high, then add potatoes and cook on high for another 30-45 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
