    Question HELP!!!!!! Ham bone recipes

    I have 2 beautiful ham bones from Xmas....I tried using them a few yrs back but the soup wasn't a big hit with the family. What do you do beside split pea soup?
    I am trying to get by a few more days on pantry stock(not much in there)
    Anything with rice or potatoes? Crockpot or pan?
    TIA

    I make a bean soup with navy beans.

    Boil the beans until they split.
    rinse..and change water.
    Add diced onions and celery and ham bone with beans in a stock pot. There should be enough water to cover ham bone. Simmer 2hours. remove bone and cool off. remove meat, add back into soup. Skim off fat..and add in some brown sugar. about 1/4 cup.
    the trick is too cook it long enough to thicken..and you might need to add a little water to make sure beans are cooked. This is better the next day.
    Hope this helps,
    BTW I don't like split pea soup either.

    I soak some white beans overnight.

    In the morning I put the beans in the crockpot with just enough water to cover them. Add a diced onion and some garlic with the ham bone (of course there is some meat on it)

    I cook it until the beans are soft and the meat falls off the bone. Remove the bone and season if necessary.

    DH will eat this for 2-3 days!

    I put my hambone in the crock pot with potatoes and greeen beans. At the end I add a little cornstarch and water mix to thicken it. My family loves this.

    Black eyed peas are supposed to bring luck in the new year! Would be a good soup to make!

    I used mine with black beans. 1 or 2 cans of beans, a small can of chopped tomato, some onion, celery, a little cumin or mexican seasoning blend. Add in chunks of ham. Salt and pepper to taste. Cook until the beans are soft. You can puree it for soup, too. Add a splash of vinegar and a spoon of sour cream to each bowl.

    You probably could just cook the rice using the ham stock instead of water.

    Do you start with any liquid? Do you just put the ham bone, some potatoes and green beans and at the end end the water and cornstarch? Sorry to bug
    Thanks all

    This is an awesome Ham and Potato Soup recipe.

    For the hambone, I do the standard type congressional soup with white beans (much as described above, although I saute the onions and celery and add garlic). Yummm

    I'd make slow cooker lentil soup, love those hambones!

    Slow Cooker Lentil Soup

    1 pound dried lentils, sorted and rinsed
    2 cans (14 1/2 oz each) beef broth
    2 medium carrots, cut into 1/2" pieces
    1 medium potato, peeled and cut into 1/2" pieces
    1 medium onion, chopped
    1 medium stalk celery, cut into 1/2" pieces
    4 cups water
    1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves (optional)
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon pepper
    1 teaspoon olive oil

    Mix all ingredients together in a slow cooker. Cover and cook on low heat setting 8-9 hours or high heat for 3-5 hours or until lentils are tender. Stir well before serving. 8 servings.

    I use hambones to make vegetable soup. I just cook the bones until all the meat falls of and remove the bones. Then I add tomatoes with juice, any vegetables I have on hand, potatoes or rice, fresh cabbage, etc. and cook it at a low simmer. I keep a gallon bag in the freezer and add leftover vegetables and even roasted potatoes to it. Then I use that in the soup so it helps prevent waste from those small bits of leftovers.

    The last time I had something similar, I cooked it really slowly and used the meat in two ways. I used about a third of the meat in a ham and vegetable soup with broth mix (lentils, split peas, chick peas and barley) along with the majority of the cooking liquid - which made about 8 portions. I used the rest of the meat in a chicken and ham pie which gave 4 generous portions. The rest of the cooking liquid I used to make a gorgeous ham and mushroom risotto using the ham stock for flavouring and some dried wild mushrooms which I was given in a Christmas hamper.

    All from a 1.70 gammon shank.
