Navy beans are the preferred legume for this ham and bean soup, but other varieties of dry beans can be used equally well.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups dry navy beans
  • 2 quarts water (less if beans aren't drained)
  • 1 meaty ham bone
  • 1 tablespoon chopped basil
  • 1 onion, peeled and chopped
  • 4 peppercorns
  • 2 stalks celery, sliced

Instructions:

Soak beans overnight in water. (Drain or not, as you prefer.)
Combine beans, water, bone, basil, onion, and peppercorns in soup kettle. Cover and simmer 1-1/2 hours. Add celery and simmer 30 minutes longer. Remove bone, cut off bits of meat, discard bone and add meat to soup. Heat thoroughly.
