At hunting camp, I would alway's make a ham for one dinner during the week and the bone was saved for this wonderful soup.
All the hunters loved this soup and I never had any left overs.

This recipe was given to me by Mo, a camp cook in Canada.
I survived 6 weeks of camp cooking and the last week I had to put bag balm on my hands. Then put my hands into socks, when I went to bed, because they were so sore.
