I made a slow cooker ham the other day and saved the bone just to make soup. Freeze the bone if you don’t plan on using it right away. You can make this on the stove in a big soup pot, Dutch oven or Instant Pot as I did here to save time. This would also be great in the slow cooker. source: skinnytaste
