Sounds delicious.  I bet this would taste great tonight after I take my kids out in the cold trick-or-treating!

Thank you Eva ..... I appreciate a new soup recipe.  I LOVE soup.   Here's one of my favorites

 
HAM & CABBAGE SOUP
1 meaty ham bone or 2 large ham hocks
About 6 cups water (I use canned chicken broth)
1 16 oz can whole tomatoes (I use the already chopped tomatoes)
1/2 tsp dried thyme, crushed
1/2 tsp dried marjoram, crushed
1 large onion chopped
1 cup diced potaotes
* 3 cups shredded cabbage
salt and pepper to taste
Put the ham and water (broth) in a stock pot. Chop tomatoes and add along with their liquid.
Add thyme and majoram.
Bring to a boil, lower heat and simmer for about 1 1/2 hours or until ham is falling from the bone.
Remove ham from the liquid and set aside to cool.
Add all the vegetables except the cabbage - simmer about 30 minutes.
Meanwhile remove skin and bones from the ham and cut into bite-size pieces and add back to vegs.
Add the shredded cabbage, Simmer 25-30 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
Makes about 6 servings.
I always save all left over vegetables in one jar in the freezer. I always dump that into almost any soup I'm making.

Nancy ,thanks for the nice recipe it looks great. I love cabbage and ham.The two together is a winner!

I made a big pot of homemade spaghetti sauce and I added browned pork neck bones and cooked it for about 6 hrs.it was awesome. Bones really add a lot of flavor to soup and sauces.

Gale - When I see good bones in the store, I buy 'em all.  I slow boil them several hours then toss the bones. 
I boil down the resulting broth, then freeze it. 
When I'm ready for veggie soup I have that ready to go.

Why on earth do BONES cost so much??

I think maybe because of demand,more people are cooking because of all the cooking shows.Have you ever browned your beef bones? It gives the soup a nice color and the flavor is enhanced.I give the dogs the marrow bones after cooking and cooling down.I supervise so no choking on bones.

Roasting the bones in the oven until they are brown make your broth so much richer tasting.  Add a bit of water to the pan that you roasted the bones in and scrape up all the browned bits.  Add that to the pot of water and and roasted bones.
I would like to know why "ox tails" are so expensive.  Used to be able to pick them up relatively inexpensively.  I remember when you could ask for a bone for the dog and they would give you one.  Take it home and make soup THEN give the bone to the dog.

I asked the butcher why are flank steaks so expensive if you can even find one.His answer was because there are only two per animal.Costco gets them in often because of the volume they sell.I'm guessing only one tail per animal.It makes the best soup,very rich!

Susan, I, too, love hamburger soup.  When the kids were growing up, it was our Lisa's favorite soup.  I need to get busy and make some for hubby and I.

Thanks for the soup recipes ladies.  They sound so yummy!

Have you all seen some of the things in the meat department lately?  Maybe it's only around here, but the local stores all carry chicken feet now.  Guess somebody is buying them for soup maybe?  I can't imagine!  I have seen that oxtails have really gone way up in price.  Last time I was in the store I saw several Asian and Polish women with them in their carts.  Popularity=price increases.  Seems every time something is highlighted on a cooking show everybody wants to buy it and the price goes up.

I love vegetable soup simmering in a slow cooker all day.  Yummy when you come home from working & all ready to eat!

When my kids were young and still at home, one of our favorites was "Saturday Soup"
After breakfast start a pot of broth - ham bones, beef bones, boney chicken parts or if none are available, some dry onion soup or bouilon.
begin to add veggies: Mondays peas, Tuesdays beans, Wednesdays corn and so on.  Clean out those tads of veggies left in the fridge from dinner eac h day.  Add fresh of whatever is missing: onions, carrots, potatoes etc
No two batches were alike and most were yummy.
Both boys now make "Saturday Soup" for their own families

Frances - I save all my left over veggies in one jar in the freezer.  What ever amount of what ever veggie goes in the soup.
Isn't it funny that I would never, never eat lima beans as part of a meal but I buy the tiny limas in the tiny can and use that in veg soup.  I can't imagine any soup without limas.

Hope everyone enjoys their soup. It's still in the 80's here, and way too warm to think about making a pot of soup. lol

Susan,  I remember the hamburger soup. My Mom used to make it and we
all loved it. I have made it several times too in the past couple of years.

Verlee, I agree.  It is too warm yet to make soup!!
