White Bean & Ham Soup

Leftover ham and bone
1 lb Dried Navy Beans
1/2 onion, chopped
1 rib of celery, chopped
1 carrot, shredded

Remove large bits of ham from bone. Cover bone with water in a pan. Bring to a boil and simmer for 1 hour.

Remove from heat and remove the bone from the water (stock). Let cool. Scrape away remaining ham from bone. Refrigerate stock and ham bits until ready to use.

Prepare 1 lb of white navy dried beans according to directions on the package.

Combine beans, stock, onion, celery, carrot, and ham drippings in crock pot. Add enough water to cover the veggies. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. 1 hour before soup is finished, add ham bits.

Enjoy a hearty bowl of soup for dinner tonight! Special thanks to my mother-in-law for providing this recipe.
