I just received this letter so I haven't tried it yet but it came at a good time. I have a ham bone from the holidays and I have all of the other ingredients on hand so I will be making it. It sounds delicious.

This is a good basic recipe to build on. I also add diced potato, matchstix carrots, some minced garlic, a bay leaf and a tiny pinch of cayenne pepper.

We prefer to use beef instead and i add a little bit ( to taste ) of thyme with the same delicious results

This is basically like I make it but I add a ham steak cut in 1/4 to 1/ in cubes.
