This made for a great lunch with toasted bread which I thoroughly enjoyed. When making my smoked ham hock weighed just under 1.5K and took 3 hours of simmering to get to the point the meat was falling off the bone. I used a mix of dried white and balotti beans, also red and orange capsicum/bell peppers and a mix of peas and corn and could only get 4 cups of water into my pot otherwise it would have been over flowing but I got a good lunch out of the chowder and 8 2 cup containers in the freezer so looking forward to some more great meals. Thank you dienia b made for Pick Me tag game under the 48 hour rule.
