      cooked usually leftover (from Easter or whenever you have ham). If no ham then just barely under fry some bacon and add it in.*I have used about 1/2 lb)

      It doesn’t matter because if it isn’t cooked it will be by the time the soup is done. If it is smoked ham it has been cooked.

    This is almost the same recipe I have been making for several years. I use my leftover ham bones to get the meat and cut off all those pieces too small to serve. It is yummy especially on cold winter days.

    To make this even heartier I chop up two small carrots and a couple celery stalks with the onion. It makes me feel like I’m getting a few extra veggies in to my “picky” but bean eating guys. We do this both with and without the meat depending on our budget.

      Valerie (and others): I use a hearty veg broth instead of just water. If I make my own broth, I use thyme, maybe oregano, it depends on my mood. Also, sometimes I put in a few dashes of chipotle Tabasco. Or Mrs. Dash.

      Hi Robert,
      yes, any beans or combination of beans would work. My grocery store has bags of mixed dry beans. I like the flavor and texture of having several times of beans, but you could certainly stick with just one variety or make your own mix based on what you have sitting in the pantry.

    I always use ham hocks in mine. I just throw the hocks when I start cooking beans and I carefully remove to make sure no bones get left behind. Wrapping hocks in cheesecloth is also another way to so bones don’t get behind if you can get cheesecloth.
