After-Christmas dinner: as part of the leftovers distribution, I now have the bone from the ham. How should I best make awesome soup with it? Difficulty: no split pea.

Along with a nice batch of ham, I also ended up with the bone from the Christmas ham. (It's a Costco spiral-sliced ham; IMHO these things are better than Honey-Baked Ham.) They trimmed the meat off as good as possible, but couldn't get it all, so there's yet more flavor waiting there. My wife doesn't care for split pea soup, so that's out. I perused the soup threads but didn't find anything to this specific circumstance. Help me make the bestest after-Christmas soup ever!
