Ham & 15 Bean Soup

15 Bean Soup

15 Bean Soup

Our winter has been mild this year, but I don’t need snow and the temperature to be in the teens for inspiration to make a nice crockpot full of Ham & 15 Bean Soup. Just a little rain can inspire me.

Ingredients: Makes about 16 servings.

  • 3 to 4 stalks of celery, chopped
  • 1 summer, yellow squash, sliced or chopped
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 heaping Tb chicken base (I use Das Dutchman Essenhaus)
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tsp ground mustard
  • 3 to 4 thick ham slices or ham steaks, cubed
  • 1 bag of 15 bean soup, put the seasoning packet aside
  • salt for seasoning

DSC_0792In a large crockpot combine all of the ingredients and pour in enough water to cover all of them well. Cook on high for 6 hours or more. Once the beans are very soft, season with salt if needed or add in the seasoning packet if you would like. I generally just throw the packet away.

This recipe makes a lot of soup, but it freezes great for future cold days.
