Expert Tips

Buy a ham shank from the supermarket or butcher, or use the bone left over from a ham served at home. Although it may not have much meat left on it, the bone itself will bring a nice, smoky flavor.

This soup can be made in advance and reheated or frozen (discard the bone before freezing, first removing any meat and adding it to the soup). If the soup becomes too thinck, stir in some water.
