Step 1

In a large pot, place the ham bone and cover it with water. Bring the water to boil, then turn it down to a simmer. Add the navy and lima beans and the vegetable soup mix and cook for about 1 hour.

Add the tomatoes, onions, peppercorns, carrots and potatoes and continue to simmer the soup for an additional 1 1/2 hours. Remove the ham bone and pull any meat you'd like off of the bone and add to the soup. Serve hot.
