      FRESH INGREDIENTS (To add at cooking time!)
      1 quart water
      1 ham hock or 2 cups cubed ham

        The recipe isn't complete! Sounds wonderful what there is of it but there are no spices listed and the recipe says to "add the remaining ingredients" but there are none listed. Hope someone can find the remainder of the recipe.
