I copied this recipe from several years ago. I will rewrite it as the original, but I'm going to add some of my personal notes at the end. It is very easy to make.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rinse beans in cool water and soak overnight. In a 6-quart stock pot, add drained beans, ham bone, water, and seasonings and bring to a simmer. Continue to simmer over a medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until beans are soft (about 1 1/2 hours). Add vegetables and cook until tender and soup has thickened. Remove ham bone, adjust seasonings and enjoy with Irish Brown Bread or you favorite crackers.
  2. Chef Matt: Meg O'Malley's.
  3. Notes: I first cooked a bone-in ham by rubbing the surface with ground ginger and cloves; put in a "brown-n-bag" and pour in a small bottle of ginger ale. Seal and place in a 325* oven for 3 hours. To the soup, I add an extra carrot, more salt and pepper, an extra teaspoon of thyme and some of the ham that I have diced. YUM ! ! !
