  • Very good, we just use water though and not chicken broth to save on sodium - it just turns into a nice flavored soup based on the ingredients. - 1/5/12

  • Will be making this for dinner tonight. Looks easy to shrink for one or 2 servings. Could do with an estimated weight on the ham though. - 12/7/10
