Best Ham Bone Soup

I got a lot of compliments on my ham bone soup this weekend and I'm thinking it could.... just might be... because I used a Honeybaked Ham ham bone.  But anyway, you could try it with any ham bone.

2 boxes Swansen chicken broth
1 Honeybaked Ham bone with a few handfuls of meat still on it
5 Tbsp. onion flakes
3 carrots, sliced
3 stalks celery, chopped
1 can red kidney beans, drained

Bring to a boil, turn down low and simmer for 7 hours or so.  Make sure all the meat is off the bone, then remove the bone carefully.  It might fall into a few pieces, so search carefully to remove it all.

Do not add any salt.  The ham should be salty enough.
Good additions:  stewed tomatoes or chunks of potatoes
