Cold weather has arrived and it's soup time.....my 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
