Introduction

I love love love this soup!! This makes plenty and I like to have it as a main course as it is lovely and filling. The gammon gives extra taste and plenty of additional protein. Yummy!!!!

Directions

Serves 8-10

1. Place the gammon in a pan and cover with boiling water. Bring back to the boil and turn the heat down to boil gently for 55 minutes.
2. Remove the gammon from the pan, keeping the water to the side, and allow to cool down and rest for 10-15 minutes.
3. Meanwhile heat the olive oil in a pan before adding the onions and frying over a medium heat for a few minutes until the onions have softened.
4. Add the carrots and potatoes and fry for a further 3 minutes. Meanwhile carve the gammon into bite pieces. I usually cut into thick slices and tear apart for a more rustic feel!
5. Stir in the gammon and the broth mix and add the water used for boiling the ham.
6. Add a bit more boiling water to ensure everything is covered with about 1" of water.
7. Crumble in a ham stock cube and add salt and pepper.
8. Bring to the boil and then turn down to simmer for 1.5-2hrs, covering the pan. Check the pan at regular intervals and top up with water if required.

* This soup will naturally absorb more water over time so if left for a while it will need more water added before reheating. *
