Directions

In a tall stock pot, brown the ham a bit on all sides. Cover with water and heat to the boiling point. Cover and simmer up to six hours. Cut the fresh vegetables into bite size pieces. After simmering the ham bone, remove from pot and add carrots, onions, and celery. Let them cook until soft, but not mushy. Add the tomatoes, tomato puree, and tomato paste and stir well. Add salt and pepper. Add the frozen vegetables and ham. Bring heat up to just under a boil and then simmer, covered, several hours. Best served the next day. On a cold winter night, you can put the soup outside to keep cold!
