Ham And Bean Soup

6 01 2010

This is my favorite bean soup recipe.  It has turnips (substituted for the parsnips the recipe calls for), onions, carrots, great northern beans, garlic and some hot pepper. I put a ham bone in it as well as some chunked ham.  Tomorrow I will fix some cornbread to go with it…too tired tonight.

Yum, we like it.

I may try this, I stuck my ham bone from the Christmas ham in the freezer for bean soup and this is as good as any🙂 thanks!

I never would have thought to use turnips. Thanks for visiting me. I’m going to look and see what else I can find on your blog now.

Hi everyone, If you like a good bean soup with garlic and a bit of spice, you will not be disappointed with this recipe. Spice it up with more red pepper or hot sauce. I was out of hot sauce, so I used a bit of red pepper. 3 cups of chopped turnips, 2 cups of chopped carrots and 1 cup of chopped onions to 1 1/2 cups of dried beans, put directly into crockpot with 5 cups of water, 2 minced garlic cloves (I may have cut back on the garlic a bit as it seems a bit much to my taste), some salt and pepper too along with your ham bone or ham. After 6-7 hours on high, you have supper!
