RE: Recipe needed for navy bean soup
My favorite is pretty easy. Take a pound and a half of dried beans, soak them covered in water overnite in a 6 qt. crock pot. Early next morning rinse beans, replace in crock pot, add a chopped onion, chopped carrot, two ham hocks (Or my favorite, a honey-baked ham bone w/ a good amount of meat on the bone), a large can of chopped tomatoes, two diced garlic cloves, 1/2 tsp. pepper, 1 tsp. salt. Fill to top w/ water and cook on high 4 hrs, then low for 8 hours. About an hour before completion, hard boil 2-3 eggs, shell and dice them, add to soup. Adjust spices and serve w/ bread.
