One-Pot Wonders

Instant Pot Ham Bone Soup

Author Notes

One day last winter, my neighbors and I were making many batches of Christmas cookies at my house and had plans to go later in the evening to see all the pretty Christmas lights at City Park here in New Orleans. Pressed for time, I needed an easy, warming, pantry type meal I could throw together in between batches of cookies to steel ourselves for hours of walking around in the cold. My neighbors had generously bequeathed the Thanksgiving ham bone to me, (because, um no, a twenty pound turkey is not enough meat for the six of us) so I wanted to return the favor by making something with it for all of us. This soup that I call, "Left Over Thanksgiving Ham Bone Soup" is what I came up with. Happy Soup Season, Everybody. Please enjoy with reckless abandon. —DoubleNegative
