How to make it

  • Put ham and bone in large soup pot, add celery, garlic, onion and cover all with water. Simmer, covered for 1 1/2 hours. Add rest of ingredients except potatoes, adding more water, if necessary. Cook another hour or so and take ham and bone out of pot. Remove all ham and return to pot, discarding bone. Add potatoes and cook until potatoes are tender. Adjust seasonings and serve.
  • NOTE: The dried slivered garlic I use is a fantastic time saver. I use it in soups and stew and things that have a lot of liquid.

    This sounds great! Put it over a bed of steaming hot white rice, some corn bread on the side and you have a true southern dish :)

    Definitely! I like to throw in some summer squash like zuchinni and patty pans at the last and serve with corn bread.
