Ham and Cabbage












A few days after Christmas, I have a favorite recipe that I always make.
It's a great way to use up any leftover ham...

Ham and cabbage

Put the ham bone into a large soup pot. Fill the pot about half full with water. Heat the water to a rolling boil so that any ham left on the bone will cook off. Add half of a medium onion, chopped.

Boil for 45 minutes to an hour.Remove the bone and pull off any remaining ham with a fork. Discard the bone and put remaining ham back into the pot.

Add about 6 quartered potatoes. I used red ones because that's what I had on hand. Cook until potatoes are tender, then add half a head of cabbage, chopped in large pieces, and a bag of frozen green beans.
Hubby likes a thicker broth so I sprinkle in some instant mashed potatoes. (great as a thickener for soups and stews).
Make sure you make enough for leftovers because it's always better the second day after the flavors mingle!...Enjoy!

Sometimes the majority only means that all the fools are on the same side.
