Nancy J.'s Story

I purchased this recipe in NAVOO,ILL. In the late 70's.
I was told Brigram Young was a distant relative,on my maternal mothers side.
While in Navoo, I visited his home there, and was allowed to sit in his rocking chair..and read for the Navooo visiters, his last letter sent back to Navoo from Misouri,before the beginning of his treck with his believers to the great west.
This is my picture of the soup I made and put in the freezer last year.I had it for lunch today.
There are shorter recipes on the internet..Please try this recipe it's worth your time & flavor is outstanding!

I did add my touch to this wonderful soup...
by using pork hocks, instead of a meaty ham bone.
Also with the use of a newer invention..
the crock pot!
