    This is a good way to use leftover ham, quite inexpensive and very tasty. Some people like to add diced carrots or potatoes. However you tweak this recipe, it will indeed become a warming winter staple.

    A delicious warming soup. It's ideal for those days after Christmas when you want simple warming food - plus you get to use up leftover ham from Christmas. Also a great treat after you have been on a long wintery walk. Published as part of the RSPCA’s Think Pig Christmas Recipes.

    This is a two stage process that takes time, but is well worth the effort. Thick and filling, it can be frozen and pulled out on a cold winter morning. Great every time.

    This is a great way to use leftovers from a bone-in ham joint. A ham bone and attached meat is slowly simmered with split peas and carrots. It's a well flavoured and delicious soup.

    People occasionally say that fog is thicker than pea soup. I say they just haven't tried this recipe yet! Not only is this soup incredible delicious but it takes advantage of the available fall and winter root vegetables!

    A hint of cream makes this fresh green soup seem delightfully indulgent. The high proportion of peas fills the soup with vitamins and fibre, while a modest amount of lean cooked ham adds protein and depth of flavour. Serve with crusty bread for a satisfying starter or add a sandwich and enjoy it for lunch.

    This is a fabulous use of a leftover ham bone. It is cooked with chickpeas in the slow cooker for a very hearty soup. You could add really any vegetables and spices to this soup. I enjoy simpler flavours, so this was wonderful for me! I wouldn't add any salt, however, as ham is already quite salty.

    More stock makes more of a soup; this recipe produces something more like a stew as pictured. Serves up to 8 as a starter and 4 - 6 as a main course.

    A hearty split pea soup made with a nice big ham bone which adds lots of flavour. It's so good to warm up with a bowl of this over the Christmas holidays or on a cold, blustery day.
