  1. Like you I grew up on this soup! I am surprised though that you added stock cubes, salt and stock from the hock because I would imagine it would make it too salty. Obviously not as you know what your doing. Sometimes we used to have to pressure cook the ham in the water and then ditch that water in order to get reduce the salt from the stock. Do use a pressure cooker? It does cut down the cooking time considerably. The only difference to your soup and mine is that I omit the potatoes and swede. Still a remarkably tasty soup. I buy my hocks from Morrisonโ€™s or my local butcher.
    Do you have Home Bargains near you? Reason being that they sell bacon pieces and I make a beautiful soup from this too and a pack costs around ยฃ2. It also provides enough for two soup recipes and at least enough bacon pieces to make a quiche. With this soup I like to use a soup broth mix for a change which has a mix of Pearl barley, macaroni, lentils in it. I buy this from Morrisonโ€™s. Cheap as chips and as you rightly say even tastier the next day with crusty bread and butter.

  2. Itโ€™s very interesting to see how many foods are similar to what Iโ€™ve been raised on in the South. (wee north of Nashville Tennessee USA in the country)
    Ham hock n beans was a staple- great white northern beans, pinto beans mostly. But we use that hock also for seasoning other foods like turnip greens, green beans, etc…
    Your food always looks so delicious ๐Ÿคค

  3. My Mom used to make a variant of this with split peas . Mom would use the bone left over from a roast of ham, especially if there was a good amount of meat left on the bone. This was my favourite soup. Chopped celery goes well in this, including the leaves.
    We often had roasts with a bone in or bones to be left over (ham, beef, chicken, turkey) , so soup could be made afterwards. Ham bones became split pea soup, beef bones became beef-barley soup, poultry bones became chicken/turkey-vegetable soup. I have in turn made all of these for my kids.

  4. Love this type of soup; my mum & grandmas made it all the time. They used to add a chopped leek instead of onion, and split peas for texture & bulk as well as the red lentils; sometimes butter beans if available (they break right down and make the soup really creamy). Pearl barley is another option; thickens the soup up & makes it even more filling. You could feed a big family for pennies if you got a ham bone from the butcher after heโ€™d carved the meat off it ๐Ÿ˜‹

  5. I think it is a disgrace that all of you want support for your channels!! Only if you want!! What about the poor who cannot and struggle to put food on the table!! Also the way you show all those have paid to your channel insults the rest of your subs.

    False like the rest of youtubers!! Wanting money!!!

  6. Looks excellent as usual. I used to make a German lentil soup all the time that was nearly identical to this. It just had a laid of American bacon in it and green lentils and a few Bay leaves. The rest is the exact same. Minus the turnips. You're absolutely right, it's so much better the next day. Thanks for reminding me about this delicious, hearty soup. Squish Jasoer for me ๐Ÿค—

  7. Braw! I was sort've weaned on soup. Growing up we'd have it at least at two meals a day, and the pot of soup got better as the days went on.
    I recently bought myself one of those Instant Pots & its sent me off on a soup making rampage, making all sorts of different soups. Though I still think a pot of well made Scots Broth/Hame Made Soup is pretty hard to beat. As well as being really comforting & "stick tae yer ribs" its one of the best & most economical ways to feed yourself & family.
    My favourite bits in the soup have always been the pearl barley & the leek pinwheels. ๐Ÿฅฃ๐Ÿ˜‹
    Great video, always enjoy them, hope you & yours have a grand weekend.

  9. I am DEFINITELY making this soup!
    I must say, I have never visited Scotland, but what with YOUR CHANNEL, and my fav' OUTLANDER series and my AMAZING Scottish colleagues, I so wish I was born in Scotland! I love everything about Scotland. No wonder our Queen is always at Balmoral – although with her Pervy son Andrew now hiding there behind mummy's skirt, I think i will re-name it to Immoral ๐Ÿ˜„
    Love you!!!
