Yankee Bean Soup

Recipe by WildlifeDi

This was given to me by a friend years ago. The measurements are approximate so trust your own judgment. It is a wonderfully hearty soup and not for the faint of heart. Freezes well if you don't put the potatoes in what you are freezing or pick them out before you freeze. Yankee Bean Soup Makes 11 quarts Ham hock or ham bouillon cubes
