The basis for this soup's broth conveniently comes from canned bean soup. Everyone who tries this comments on how nicely the smoky flavor of ham blends with the vegetables.

"Both my husband & I loved it. Had a leftover meaty ham bone, used it with a little liquid smoke. A keeper."

"I brought ham shanks by mistake and did not know what to make with them, so I made this soup and the whole family loved it!"
