Ham and Bean Soup


2-3 lbs. ham with bone
2 qts. water
1/2 c. diced celery
1/2 c. shredded carrots
1 can (40 1/2 oz.) Great Northern Beans
1/4 tsp. black pepper


Cook ham in water 2-3 hours or until meat is tender. Remove meat from bone and cut into bite-size pieces. Add celery and carrots to broth; simmer until vegetables are tender. Add ham, beans and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 30 minutes.

For better flavor I add chicken soup base to taste.

Makes 12-15 Servings
