Bean and Vegetable Soup
- 1 lb. dried navy or great northern beans
- 1 lb. ham cut in 1 inch cubes ( I often use a meaty ham bone)
- 2 cloves of garlic minced
- 1 bay leaf
- 1 cup potato peeled and cubed
- 1 cup finely chopped onion
- 1 cup thinly sliced celery
- 1 cup diced carrot
- salt and pepper
Rinse beans; then place in a large pan with 3 quarts water. Bring to boil and simmer for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and let stand for 1 hour. Drain beans and add 2 1/2 quarts (10 cups) fresh water to pan.
Add ham, garlic, and bay leaf. Simmer for 2 hours. Add vegetables, salt and pepper. If using the ham bone cut the meat from the bone and return meat back to soup. Cover and simmer for one hour. Stir occasionally.
