Well, cool weather has visited us again in Ohio and we are expecting some snow tonight and tomorrow so it seemed like a good time to get the ham bone out of the freezer and make some bean soup. It was my first time to add mushrooms to this soup and it certainly added another delicious flavor to it.
I love a good bean soup with some crusty Italian bread spread with real cream butter on a cold and windy day. It is great comfort food to me.
Rinse well and then soak for 3 - 4 hours. Drain and rinse again.
