Easy and Delicious!, Member anne.russell7

I used left-over ham instead of the hambone. This is, as mentioned before, a wonderful, thick and hearty main meal soup. The simple ingredients (onion, celery & celery leaves, carrots, etc.) blend to make for a complex and delicious flavor. It is great for a Sunday early dinner. I used Lawry's seasoned salt and cut the amount to 1 1/2 teaspoons. We love to make soups like this and then freeze the leftovers for another time. I have shared this recipe with others as one of our favorites.
