Ham Bone Soup



  1. Bring ham bone and ham scraps to boil in water with onions and pepper. If ham has been previously cooked, simmer for 2 hours. If ham is not cooked, simmer for 3 hours. Do not add salt until later, as the ham is so salty that more may not be necessary.
  2. Add potatoes, cabbage and tomatoes and simmer 1 hour longer.
  3. Add cayenne pepper and add more salt if needed.
  4. Skim off excess fat before serving.
  5. Serve with cornbread!
