Mo's Ham Bone 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.
1ham bone (left over)
·extra ham, cubed
·carrots, onion, celery & potatoes, diced
3 Tbspchicken bouillon granules
1 pkgsplit peas, washed and drained
1/2 cpearl barley, uncooked (washed and drained)
·pepper to taste
1/4 tspmarjoram, dried (mo had this in all her recipes, but i never added it)
How to Make Mo's Ham Bone Soup
- Simmer ham bone in a large pot until the meat falls off the bone. Remove the ham bone.
Keep the broth.
Skim off fat.
Add extra ham cubes.
- Add more water to the same pot until 1/2 full and bring to a boil.
Add diced carrots, onion, celery & potatoes.

This is really good with home made bread or rolls.
