      Amazing! That is how I would describe the Harvest Bean Chowder. I am a big bean fan and this recipe has found a new home.
      I had a ham bone from a recipe I had made and wanted to use it somehow so I froze it along with some left over ham. I just made a couple of changes to suit my needs. I don't like celery so I left it out and increased the other veggies, and I used red potatoes because that is what I had, but the recipe didn't really specify which one to use.
      I soaked the beans over night, and slow cooked them that afternoon. I added the ham bone I froze along the extra ham that was left over to from a nutritious meal. This will definitely make an encore appearance! Thanks Dancer.

      I agree with the last poster. This recipe has found a new home with us also.I didn't make many changes. I used the whole 1 lb. bag of beans, added extra water as needed, and I also only added about 3/4 cup of the milk. I don't think I'll use it at all next time. We love beans of all kinds, and have never found one we don't like. Great recipe! It could be dumped into a crockpot and fixed, with no problems at all.
