Introduction

I usually get into my dried beans & grains & use 2 cups of all the light colored beans & grains. It doesn't matter which. I always save my ham bones & like to leave some meat on them to make soups with. I usually get into my dried beans & grains & use 2 cups of all the light colored beans & grains.

Tips

I always like to buy a bone-in ham so I can have ham & bean soup when the majority of the ham is eaten.


Directions

Place all ingredients in large stock pot. Bring to a rolling boil. Turn temperature down to a simmer & cook for a couple of hours. Remove the ham bone & let cool. Remove all the meat from the bone & chop up & return to pot. Discard bones and fat.
