More About This Recipe
  • The ham bone is the large piece left over from a giant bone-in ham, like the ones served at big holiday dinners such as Christmas or Easter. Never throw that bone away! It is the key ingredient for absolutely delicious stocks and soups like this super easy slow-cooker ham bone soup. If you don’t have all of the ingredients required for this soup on hand, and don’t have time to go to the grocery store, you can still make a ham bone stock that you can use in homemade soups. Simply simmer the ham bone in a large pot or Dutch oven on the stove with water and ingredients like chopped onion, celery, carrots and/or garlic. After a few hours, strain the stock and discard the solids. Store your stock in the fridge and use it within 2-3 days. Can’t get enough of your favorite soups? Make them even better with these simple (but delicious!) tips and tricks.
