Basic Ham and Bean Soup
November 06, 2006

The flavor of this wonderful soup is anything but basic. I've made this twice so far and loved it both times. To help make the beans soft, add 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda to the soaking water; it helps in breaking down the outer shell. However, do remember to drain off the water with baking soda and use fresh water for making the soup. I took two cups of the soup, pureed and added back into the soup to thicken it.
