Top Review by Rachel Castle

WOW! I made these yesterday and they were soo good. I didn't add the cayenne, and forgot the green onions for garnish. It didn't matter they were still the best Navy Beans we've ever had. I did use a smoked honeybaked ham bone and some meat from it. Also, I did not puree the mixture. Truely a keeper recipe. Thanks for posting. Rachel Castle
