2 1/2 qt. water
1 meaty ham bone (1 1/2 lb.)
1 clove garlic, minced
1 small bay leaf
1 c. cubed potatoes
1 c. celery, thinly sliced
1 c. onion, finely chopped
Salt and pepper


Boil the beans in the water for 2 minutes before removing from the heat to let stand for 1 hour. Then add the ham bone, garlic and bay leaf to the beans, and cover and simmer them for 2 hours or until ingredients are almost tender. Add the vegetables and salt and pepper to taste, and simmer them for 1 hour longer. Remove the ham bone, cut off the meat and dice it to add to the beans.
