Re: Favorite ham and bean soup

I make one that my husband had growing up. He LOVES it. Ham and beans are not my fav but this is a super simple recipe that he and his family really enjoy.

1 lb great northern beans (dry, my mom uses cooked but the dry is nice because it slowly takes the flavors)
ham, chopped (I used 2 cups ish)
salt and pepper
bacon grease-optional (my MIL always saves bacon grease and adds a tbs or so, I have only done it one time, we are not bacon grease savers. )

Take the beans and rinse, put in large crock pot, add ham and salt and pepper, fill with water till about 2 inches from the top. Turn on low and cook for about 10 hours.

We serve it with cornbread. Makes a ton and is a cheap, filling meal!
