    Likkel's Note:

    Another version of this famous soup but, this one can never be accused of being bland! It is as full of flavor as the senate is full of...well, never mind! :-)

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Soak beans overnight in 6 cups of the water (or bring to boil; boil 2 minutes and let stand, covered, 1 hour).
    2. 2
      Add remaining 4 cups water, the ham hock, bay leaf and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover; simmer 1 1/4 hours or until beans are almost tender.
    3. 3
      Stir in remaining ingredients, cover; cook 20 to 30 minutes more, until beans are tender.
    4. 4
      Discard bay leaf. Cut meat from bone and shred, then return the meat to the pot.
    5. 5
      *I often throw everything into the crockpot, after the first step, and let it simmer on high for 4 hours or on low 8 hours -- a good dinner to come home to! Just shred the meat and remove the bone and bay leaf before serving.

      This was the best Bean Soup I have ever made. I halved the recipe. Replaced 1/4 cup of water with pan drippings from our Thanksgiving ham. I also added a little liquid smoke to the recipe.
      Thank you for posting
