Ham Bone Soup
By Jessica Dayon tjdayon
My grandmother-Rita- makes this soup after the holidays when there is leftover ham and a leftover ham bone. It is so delicious. Making the roux with the bacon fat really gives the soup the best flavor imaginable. However, if desired, you can make the roux with oil instead of bacon fat. This soup is delicious leftover too.
I have also made this soup with 2 ham steaks (with the small round bones in them) when I was craving it but did not have a ham bone leftover.

Oh, This looks soooooo very good! I have made ham bone soup before and didn't care for it; but this recipe is very different from the one I used and I think this will taste much better. Next time I have a ham bone...this is the soup I will try. 5/01/12

Adding some grated carrot I've made this many times but never with the bacon
which I know will make a wonderful difference. plan to make it soon
