New England Boiled Dinner

This year for Easter, my parents made a New England Boiled Dinner instead of the traditional Easter fare.  This is one dish that I really enjoy, though I have never made it myself.

Basically, the ham and vegetables cook together in their own juices, and the flavors really blend nicely.  My dad said that he soaked the ham twice prior to cooking it to cut down on the salt content of the final dish.  After our meal, we packed up the leftover vegetables and meat, and used the remaining broth to make a pea soup for another future meal.
