I certainly got my money's worth out of our Christmas ham. Besides the Ham and Swiss Cheese frittata that I made for supper the other evening, I took the ham bone and made 15 bean soup. I purchased a package of Hurst 15 bean soup and followed the recipe on the back of the package. Had I realized that I could have done this in my crock pot, I would have used that method.
I recommend the Wellshire Farms Spiral cut ham that I purchased at Whole Foods. It was tender, moist and delicious. Starting with a great product such as this, made the 15 bean soup flavorful and not salty as some hams could be. There was quite a bit of meat on the ham bone when I made the soup. After the soup was done, I cut off the ham into pieces and added that to the soup for additionaal texture. Yum...it was good on this very cold day today.
