Bariatric Lynn's 15 Bean Soup w/Turkey Ham

Submitted by: HEALTHYLIVN4ME

Introduction

The trick to using Turkey Ham in slow cooking soups and stews is to not put it in early or else the ham flavoring cooks out of the turkey and the end result is not especially tasty, especially when expecting it to be ham-flavored. Yet I stil want a ham flavoring to this bean soup so I added 4 ounces of turkey ham chopped into 1/4-inch cubes to the bean soup at the start of the cooking process and added 12 ounces of 3/4-inch cubes just a few minutes from serving the soup. The small amount of turkey ham added early provided the ham flavoring and the small cube size mixed right in with the beans and took on the flavoring of the beans so there was no problem with the taste.

If you cannot find the Hurst's 15 Bean Soup in your grocery store, you may contact the company at www.hambeens.com or by calling 1-800-426-2336. Another comparable bean soup mix could also be used if the nutrition information is comparable.

I have given instructions for the traditional method for making this soup and a quick method but I do not recommend the quick method because it can cause more digestive problems for people. Beans cooked slowly for a long time significantly reduces any digestive problems or flatulence.

Ingredients

    Hurst’s HamBeens® Original 15 Bean Soup®
    1 lb. of turkey ham
    1 cup onion, chopped
    1 14.5 oz. can stewed or diced tomatoes
    1 tsp. chili powder
    Juice of 1 lemon
    1-2 cloves garlic, minced

Directions

Traditional Cooking Method:
Soaking: Place beans in a large pot, cover with 2 quarts of water. Allow beans to soak overnight, or at least 8 hours. (I always soak them overnight.)

After soaking, drain water and rinse beans until water runs clear. Inspect beans carefully for any stones or debri. Add 2 quarts of water and 4 ounces of the turkey ham cut into 1/4-inch cubes. Bring beans and turkey ham to a boil, reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 2 ½ hours. After simmering, add onion, tomatoes, chili powder, lemon, garlic and 12 ounces of turkey ham cut into 3/4-inch cubes. Simmer for another 30 minutes. The Hurst's HamBeens come with a small packet of ham flavoring whch can be added at this time then cook 1 to 2 minutes more before cooking is completed. Salt and pepper to taste. Makes approximately 16, 3/4 cup servings.

Yield: approximately 3 quarts. Serves 14-16.

Quickcook Method:
Place rinsed beans in a pot with 3 quarts of water. Bring to a rapid boil. Reduce heat, add 4oz of turkey ham cut into 1/4-inch cubes, cover and continue boiling 60-70 minutes. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking. After 60 minutes, add the rest of the ingredients, including the remaining 12 ounces of turkey ham cut into 3/4-inch cubes. Simmer for 30-45 minutes. Add contents of flavor packet 1 to 2 minutes before cooking is completed. Salt and pepper to taste.

Note: Dry beans are a raw agricultural product. Although the food processor carefully cleans these beans, stones and debris may be present. Sort and rinse beans prior to cooking. Depending on water hardness, cooking time may need to be increased.
