Pick over the dried beans and discard any debris.

Wash and drain and put beans in a large pot and cover with water.
3
Let stand 8 hours or overnight.

The next day, chop celery, carrots and onions into 1/4-inch pieces. (This is easier with a food

Remove meat from bones and cut meat into half-inch pieces.
9
Put 2 cups of the soup into a blender along with the butter and flour; puree.
10
Pour this puree back in pan.

Puree more of the soup if you prefer a smoother texture and add the chopped ham pieces back into the soup.

Simmer for 15-20 minutes until soup is slightly thickened.

Good when sprinkled with a few drops of hot pepper sauce just before serving.
