My Mom's Bean Soup
Last updated: 3/7/03
grew-up in a family with six children. I fondly remember gathering
around the table on a cold winter's day and eating a large bowl of my Mom's
bean soup. My Wife made some of it today and it was just as good as I
had remembered. Nutritious, economical, simple, filling, and oh so good, here's
the secret to putting
a smile on a hungry kid's face.
Serves a bunch of hungry kids.
1 lb of Navy beans.
1 onion, diced.
1 carrot, diced.
1 ham bone, 1/4 lb salt pork (diced), or 1/4 to 1/2 lb daisy ham (diced).
1 can tomato soup.
Salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste.
1. Sort through beans and remove any foreign material.
2. Wash beans in strainer, rinsing a couple of times.
3. Put in 3-quart saucepan and add 4 cups of water.
4. Put a lid on the pan and let the beans soak overnight.
5. Remove any floaters.
6. Add water as needed until it covers the beans by about 1 inch.
7. Add ingredients.
8. Gently stir to mix.
9. Bring to a low boil and simmer with the lid on for 2 - 3 hours (or
until beans are soft).
