Okay, finally, here is the recipe for the soup that I make using the leftover hambone. You could use any kind of beans you like, or lentils or split peas, I just like white beans best.
White Bean and Ham Soup
1 lb. white or other beans, rinsed and soaked overnight
1 meaty hambone
1 sm. onion, chopped
2 cubes chicken bouillon
1/2 tsp. celery salt
1 bay leaf, salt and pepper
Rinse and drain your soaked beans. Place all ingredients in a crock-pot. Fill with enough water to cover beans (about 6-8 cups). Cook on low heat for 6-8 hours. Remove bay leaf and bone, chop meat into small pieces, and add meat back to soup. Serve with hot bread or rolls.
