If you're making a big bone-in ham for the holidays this year, don’t throw away the leftover ham bone once all the meat’s been cut off. It’s a key ingredient in this soup that adds instant flavor with minimal effort! Here I added some vegetables, potatoes and cabbage, there are no beans but you can add some if you wish. So delicious and easy to make!
