Ham soup recipes. By Chef John a red bowl of creamy soup with chunks of potato garnished with sliced green onions with sliced bread in the background. Cover and simmer for 2-12 hours or until meat starts to all off the bones. In a large Dutch oven or heavy bottomed soup pot heat oil over medium high heat and add.
Cover soup and cook on high 6 hours or low 9-10 hours. Add onion and carrot and saute until just starting to soften about 3-4 minutes. Mix ham stock with vegetable stock and heat.
Simmer the ham bone in a stock pot filled with enough water to cover the bone halfway about 2 quartslitres depending on size of bone. Bring to a boil. With the slightly sweet somewhat salty and subtly smoky flavor of the ham this hearty soup is the ideal fall or winter soup — a great one for lunches or as a starter for dinner.
