Navy Bean Soup With Ham and Vegetables

This soup has been a favorite of my family for years. I like to consider the recipe a general guideline which is forgiving and lends itself to modification depending on the cook. If you make this recipe as it stands, it is wonderful. Don't get too hung up on what ham you put in, but I think the post-Easter ham bone which still bears meat is the best for me. Pork hocks are good if you like a smokey flavor. Honey glazed ham works great when you want the hint of sweetness for your sweetie pie! Sometimes I buy a simple cooked ham-in-a-foil-bag at Costco or Sam's and add a bit of brown sugar and honey to the soup! (The ham that doesn't get used gets portioned and frozen for the next batches I make!)
