Liquid expands when frozen, so make sure the container is big enough to leave a little bit of room at the top.

Leave about 1-2 inches of space above the soup in the container.

Do I have to use Hambone?

While a ham bone gives this soup loads of flavor in the event that you don't have one and you're longing for a hot bowl of bean and ham soup you can purchase a little boneless ham and slice it up to add to the soup.

I likewise add additional ham when the ham bone I am utilizing doesn't have a great deal of additional meat on it.

Go ahead and add more ham or utilize less relying upon how "substantial" your ham bone is.
