Ham Bone Soup

Yield: 10 servings

Ingredients

  • One large, meaty ham bone
  • 10 cups water
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1 tsp dried thyme leaves
  • Olive oil
  • 1 large white onion, diced
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 medium potatoes, diced
  • 1 orange pepper, diced
  • 1 lb. corn
  • 4 cans (15 oz. each) great northern beans, drained
  • 3/4 lb. Cubed leftover ham

Directions

  1. Place the ham bone in a large stock pot and cover with 10 cups water.  Add the spices, bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer.
  2. In a frying pan, saut√© the onions and garlic until they start to brown.  Add to the stock pot.
    • I did this in batches because there is so much onion.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients to the stock pot.
  4. Cover and simmer for 60 minutes.
  5. Remove the bone from the soup.  Cut off the chunks of meat, dice them up, and toss back into the soup.
  6. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes.
  7. Serve hot.
