Senate Bean Soup


  • 1 lb white navy beans, washed, sorted, and soaked in cold water overnight
  • 1/2 lb minced bacon or a ham hock
  • 1 large minced onion
  • gallon of water
  • salt (begin with at least a teaspoon) and plenty of black pepper to taste.


In the morning, put everything in a large crock pot and turn on low for 8 hours, at least. The longer the soup cooks, the mushier the beans will be. I usually mash about 1/4 to 1/3 of the cooked beans to make a nice, thick soup.

To Serve:

The good, old fashioned hillbilly way (which is the best, in my opinion), in a large soup bowl, pour soup over a nice piece of buttered, yellow corn bread, sprinkle with chopped, sweet onions, and have some sliced, fried potatoes, nice and crispy brown. Somehow, I doubt if this is on the Adkins diet.
