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.
