The basis of this hearty soup is gammon or ham plus other ingredients as desired, in this instance it's peas, potatoes and leeks. It can easily be altered as required, but I like to make it quite thick with chunky bits of veg and ham, served with a thick slice of warm bread & butter.
I used cooked gammon and simmered it in the stock beforehand. I didn't use the potatoes which probably made the soup a bit thin. I also didn't use the bay leaves but I loved this recipe - 04 Mar 2012

Just the meal I needed after a day spent in the cold. Warming and Hearty. Proper soul food. Just tweaked a bit with the addition of diced parsnip. Added some sweetness. blooming Handsome. 😊 - 16 Jan 2016
