What if my Easter ham had a fancy glaze, like your Sweet Chili Glazed Ham? Can I still use it in this soup?

Why not? The glaze will simply transfer to the soup and make it much more interesting. The only change you can make is to omit the thyme and bay leaf if they clash with the flavors of your frosting.

Can I make this with dried beans instead of canned?

Yes, but it will take longer. If you add the beans without soaking them first, they will need to be cooked at least 45 minutes on high pressure, plus natural release. If you don’t want to wait that long, soak the beans in the morning, then drain and rinse them before adding them to the soup.

If I don’t have an Instant Pot, can I make this recipe in my slow cooker?

Yes, but again, the beans will need to be soaked first. In this case, I would soak them overnight, then drain and rinse them in the morning. Sauté the vegetables in a skillet on the stove, then add them along with the other ingredients to the slow cooker and cook for eight hours on low.
