Creamy Ham Carrot Parsnip SoupI made a 12 pound bone-in ham for one of my holiday parties and had a LOT left over. I made leftover ham quiche, ham frittatas, and ham sandwiches. Needless to say, my husband begged, "Please! No more ham! If you use the ham, make sure it's well hidden!" Well, his wish was my command with this soup. There is loads of ham completely hidden. You wouldn't even know it's in there. He says this is the best soup he's had in a long time. (I'm in love with it, too!)

  9. Most of the meat will have fallen off the bone when it's done. Remove bone and bay leaves.
