    I will try this soup, but I wish that ALL recipes would say what the size of the serving is....1 cup? 1.5 cup? To say that it has 12 servings does not really help me plan. - 9/2/13

    This was really, really good! We had juice left from cooking the ham and threw that in with the broth, and that made it a bit thinner. But using the immersion blender thickened it up. - 4/19/12
