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. The RSPCA are are encouraging everyone to ‘Think Pig’ by buying higher welfare pork.

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 warming split pea soup is ideal for cold and blustery days. Leftovers will freeze well. Ideal for using up any small bits of cooked gammon.

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.
