Gifted a ham bone.. What would you do with it?

I was given the bone, which still has lots of meat on it, from a recent family jam. I sliced off big chunks of the meat, and now it's all sitting in my freezer. I usually flavor a soup with it (potatoe kale or yellow split pea). What would you do with it?

Make a ham stock and then use in soups, stews, gravies, and sauces.

Toss it into a batch of pea soup (made from scratch of course). The soup will take about 4-6 hours of simmering. Take the bone out and scrape any meat that not already not fallen off in the soup.
Buy a nice fresh crusty bread and enjoy.
(or freeze since soup is not really a summertime food)

I know you mentioned you normally use it for pea soup, but if you want to try something slightly different, give Cuban black bean soup a try: http://www.thekitchn.com...

I froze the braising liquid from Momofuku's ham terrine once and used cubes of it to flavor sauces, soups, etc. It had such a great flavor and seems it would be easy to make using the bones and bits of meat. Throw in some cinnamon, star anise, garlic and bay leaf.

Oh thanks everyone! I think I'll try to cut it (its big!!! Over a food long ;) and then use half soon for that black bean recipe, Meaghan and then maybe a little late a slick long greens sauté, like you suggested, Exbruxelles!
Keep the ideas rolling though!
