  • 1 leftover hambone
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 carrots, peeled and diced
  • 1 russet potato, peeled and diced
  • 1 cup canned white kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 3/4 cup frozen corn kernels
  • 3/4 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 bay leaves
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 1/2 cups leftover diced ham


  1. Place leftover hambone in your Clay pot and add enough water to cover the bone halfway, about 6-7 cups. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until very fragrant, about 30 minutes to 1 hour; remove and discard hambone.
  2. Heat olive oil in your Clay pot over medium heat. Add garlic, onion, carrots and potato. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onions have become translucent, about 2-3 minutes. Stir in ham stock, beans, corn, thyme and bay leaves; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  3. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 10-12 minutes. Stir in ham until heated through, about 1-2 minutes.
  4. Serve immediately.
