Ham and Bean Soup. 1 ham bone (I leave meat on the bone while it cooks) 4-5 cups leftover ham 2 cups dry navy beans 2 cups celery, chopped 2 cups carrots, chopped 1 large onion, finely chopped 3 cloves garlic, finely minced 4 sprigs fresh thyme, or 2 teaspoons dry 1/4 cup fresh parsley or 1 tbsp. dry 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper 8-9 cups chicken stock
Ham and Beans and More. I added about 1/2 t. ground chipotle, thyme, cumin, and turmeric. I was going to throw in some shredded spinach but forgot, will def do next time. Also cooked the bacon first, removed, then cooked onion and celery in the bacon fat. Who wouldn't?
