How to Make Best Ham Bone Soup

Step-by-Step

  • 1Place the soaked beans into a very large pot and fill with enough water to cover by about 1 inch. Bring to a boil, then simmer over low for 30 minutes. Drain.
  • 2Add the ham bone, ham, onion, celery, carrots, tomatoes and vegetable broth. Season with Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, chili powder, bay leaves, pepper, parsley and lemon juice. Pour in enough of the chicken broth to cover the ingredients.
  • 3Simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally, for about 4 hours. Add more chicken broth as needed throughout the day. Remove the ham bone and season with salt if needed. Simmer for another 30 minutes. Remove bay leaves before serving. This is great served with cornbread!
