“This is a recipe that I got off of another recipe site and it makes the most delicious ham and bean soup! I make it anytime that I have leftover ham and a ham hock. It is very important to use a ham hock, and it is not to be made in a crockpot. But, made as directed, it is the best that I have ever tasted!”
