  • Ad
  • 2 Tbsp. salt
  • 1-1/2 cups bite-size pieces lean baked ham (about 1/2 lb.)
  • meaty ham bone or ham hock

  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped

The next day, drain the beans and combine with 2 quarts water in a large saucepan or stockpot. Add the ham and boil f or 1-1/2 to 3 hours, or until the beans are fully cooked and tender.

Add the onions, celery, tomatoes, red pepper, and salt and pepper to taste. Simmer for at least 30 minutes, until the vegetables are cooked. Serve hot.
