If you’re using a ham hock with ham meat, you don’t have to add the additional cooked diced ham. We used a ham bone that didn't have much meat, so we added the extra diced ham. The saltiness of the broth will vary greatly depending on how well seasoned your chicken broth is and if the ham is salted. Make sure to taste the broth after cooking and adjust seasoning accordingly. Dried beans cook differently too. After several tests, we found that an average cooking time of 1 hour worked best to ensure that different types of dried beans were thoroughly cooked. If you're using larger beans like dried lima beans, they will need an additional 15 minutes cooking time. Instant Pot needs to be a 6-qt size or larger.
Remove ham bones and any excess fatty chunks from the Instant Pot and pull off any ham meat and cut into small pieces. Add the ham back into the Instant Pot. If you want a thicker soup, mash a few of the beans in the soup. Give the soup a good stir and add additional salt and paper, to taste.
Recipe was tested in a 6-quart Instant Pot.
