    Sue Lau's Note:

    By Winslow. Make sure your beans are fresh and haven't been sitting in the cupboard for months. As they get older, they tend to not cook very well and it is difficult to make them get tender or done. Serve with cornbread and hot sauce if you like. Sometimes I add a little minced onion on the top for garnish.

      Very simple soup with good flavor. I increased the amounts of carrots and celery to use up what I had on hand needing to add just a bit more water to give the broth needed. I blended up about 1/3 of the beans before adding the other veggies to make it a bit creamier. Will definitely keep this in my rotation of winter soups. Thanks.

      This soup turned out great. I did make a couple changes, I decided I wanted to make it in the crockpot after soaking the beans all day and cooked it overnight. I used more carrots, celery and onion, about a cup of each, and also added a minced jalapeno. These were things that I needed to use up. I enjoyed a bowl for a late breakfast and really enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing this delicious, simple recipe.

      Excellent recipe! I add about 3-4 small gold or red potatoes to mine, and I always overdo the veggies as well. Great base, and it turns out wonderful! Such a cozy soup for the few cold days we get down here in TX! :D
