      Green Tomato and Country Ham Soup
      2 tbs butter
      4 to 6 oz country ham or smoked ham, diced
      1 small onion, diced
      2 cloves garlic, minced
      4 cups chicken broth
      8 medium green tomatoes, peeled and chopped
      2 medium red tomatoes, peeled and chopped
      1 jalapeno pepper, seeds and stem removed, minced
      1/4 tsp celery salt
      dash Tabasco sauce, optional
      salt and pepper, to taste
      Heat butter in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat.

      Add ham, onion, and garlic. Sauté, stirring, until onion is tender. Add chicken broth, chopped green and red tomatoes, and minced jalapeno pepper.

      Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 30 minutes.
      Working in batches, pulse in a blender or food processor until almost smooth. Pour back into the saucepan and add celery salt.

      Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Taste and add salt and pepper and Tabasco sauce, as desired. OR, if you prefer, eat without processing — chunky style;-D Serve with cornbread and a salad…yum!
