Ham and Bean Soup

Cold weather has arrived and it's soup favorite winter food. There's nothing that beats the winter chill like a steaming bowl of soup.

I made this in the crockpot before I went to work so I just dumped everything in at once, but if I was at home I would add the celery and carrots later.

I will try to post my cornbread recipe sometime this week too.

Ham and Bean Soup

1 lb package dried northern beans
Ham Bone or about 1 lb diced ham if you don't have a ham bone.
6 cups water
1/2 cup diced onion
1/2 cup diced celery
1/2 cup diced carrots
salt and pepper to taste

Rinse and check beans for any debris. Put in a crockpot along with the water, ham bone, onions and seasoning.
Cover and cook on low for 8 hours or until beans are tender. Add more water if needed.
Add celery and carrots during the last 3 or 4 hours.
Remove ham bone and pull off the meat. Add the meat to crockpot.
Serve with Cornbread

  2. YUM---I love that soup, especially during these times of the year. It was about 20 degrees the other morning here. Brrrrr...

    I had soup today also--but ours was Bean with Bacon.... It was good--but probably not as good as yours...
