Place all ingredients into a 6-quart crock pot. Cook on Low for 8-9 hours or High for 5-6 hours. One hour before soup is done, remove the ham bone and let cool on a cutting board for 15 minutes.
Remove the meat from the ham bone and add it back to the crockpot. Discard bone. Serve when soup is warmed through.
- Replace the water and Bouillon cubes with two 32-oz. containers of chicken broth or stock, if desired.
- Canned corn can be replaced with equal amounts of frozen corn.
- Ham hocks are not the same thing as ham bones, although ham hocks will still work with this recipe. You won’t get as much meat from the bone, but you’ll still get plenty of flavor from it. If you are unable to find a ham bone at the store, you’ll likely be able to find a ham hock or even a smoked ham hock (even better!).
- Add a bay leaf or two to the pot for an added touch of flavor. Just remember to pull it out before serving!
