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.
