"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
If you have a ham bone, you can use that. The day before, simmer the ham bone for at least 6 hours in enough water to cover it. You may need to add more water as it cooks down. Strain out the bone and the little pieces that fall off. Then chill over night, and skim the fat off the next day and use that broth for the water.
