DIRECTIONS

  • Soak beans overnight in water to cover plus 2"; drain; place beans in a pot of cold, fresh water to cover plus 2"; add the onions and ham and bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat and simmer for 1 hour, skimming foam off occasionally.
  • Add the salt and continue simmering, uncovered, over low heat for 1 1/2-2 hours more, stirring frequently; season with pepper; cut meat off bones, chop and return to the pot.
  • The soup is actually best when refrigerated for a couple of days and then served.
