    nitko's Note:

    This is very old recipe my grandmother used to make. If you cook beans and have some surpluses you may use it for this soup. The soup must be little bit sour, and DO NOT use “acetto balsamico”, but normal red or white wine vinegar. The best is to use white beans or beans we call in Croatia “tresnjevec”. I did not include beans soaking time in this recipe.
