Who doesn't love a soup?! What's even better - this soup is easy to make. I do pressure can my ham stock so that its readily available. If you don't have the time to can homemade ham stock then cook your ham bone and continue on with this recipe. IF you taste your soup and it's lacking 'depth of flavor', add chili powder!! It's not an 'in your face' taste - it deepens the ham flavor and soup. I do add chili powder and lemon juice to my homemade ham stock as its being made, if you don't follow my recipe for ham stock then, you will probably want to add some chili powder directly to this soup...add a small amount, it will make a difference.
NOTE: HOMEMADE HAM STOCK
