Ham and Beans


1 cup dry beans (navy, great northern, whatev)

1 ham bone

1 c chopped onion

3/4 t thyme

1/4 t pepper

1 bay leaf


Get those beans soft your favorite way (overnight in a pan of water, cooked on stove for a while, or go the easy route and use the canned kind); drain and rinse. In your big soup pot, combine beans, ham bone, onion, and seasonings with 4 cups of water. Bring to boiling, reduce heat. Cover and simmer for an hour or until beans are tender. Take out the ham bone, cut off and chop the meat. Pitch bone and bay leaf. Slightly mash beans in the pot. Add meat back in and heat through.


You can serve it straight up like this, or add in some veggies when you take out the ham bone (sliced carrots, parsnips, rutabaga, chopped cabbage, spinach, whatever you think everyone will eat). Let it simmer longer if you go this route so the veggies are tender.
