Ham, Potatoes and Cabbage

We had a very large ham this Christmas and there was plenty leftover. I froze the ham bone and extra ham to make a favorite dish of ours. My family has made this for a long as I can remember...

Ham, Potatoes, 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 the remaining ham back into the pot.
Add about 6 large 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).
