I just made a stock out of a ham bone....What to make besides a bean type soup?

    Beyond bean, lentil, or pea soup there is no reason not to use it, in the same measure, for the broth/stock in other soups. Ham barley, ham vegetable, beer cheese, etc. It's asparagus season and I think it would be great in cream of asparagus soup.

    Likewise, use it in pilaf or risotto. When making mac&cheese, cook the pasta in broth. If there's a lot, boil it down and freeze the concentrated stock in small containers, diluting when you use it.

      Greens! You will end up with wonderful pot likker. Or perhaps Hoppin' John.

          I know you already made stock, but next time you have a ham bone, MAKE THIS! This is one terrific soup :0)

          Yes, it's a bean (and greens) soup, but a little out of the ordinary and it's really, really good.

            I use my ham stock in potato/ham/cheese soup.

            This week, I used some frozen ham stock to make baked beans with dried navy beans.
