  • Drain bean water.
  • Add remaining ingredients except celery and carrots to beans (including 7 cups water).
  • Bring beans to a boil, then lower heat, cover, and simmer for about 90 minutes, stirring and skimming occasionally.
  • Adjust cooking time if needed until beans are soft and tender.
  • Add carrots and celery and cook for about half an hour.
  • Fish out the ham hock, and when cool enough to handle, remove its meat and add the meat back to the pot.
