A Quick and Easy Recipe from Our Newlywed Kitchen
1 – 16oz bag Great Northern Beans
6 cups water
1 large onion (peeled and chopped)
1 large potato (peeled and chopped)
3 stalks celery (sliced)
3 carrots (peeled and sliced)
2–3 Tbs. Heinz ketchup (option)
Rinse beans, then place in crockpot with ham bone and water on low for approximately six hours. In the last hour, when beans are nearly done, add vegetables and allow to cook till tender. When beans and vegetables are tender and ham has fallen off bone, soup is done. Remove ham bone and add ketchup, stirring in. Ketchup is optional. It gives a little flavor but mostly color to the soup. Tip: the better the glaze used on the original ham, the better the soup.
I hope you enjoy every spoonful.
