For anyone who has ever eaten at a Cracker Barrel , you will know how really good the soup is. This soup recipe is from the Cracker Barrel Old Country store cookbook that I got from them 15 years ago. I love navy bean soup and this has became a favoret of mine, and I use it often. Lt'g filling and great to eat on those cold wenter days.
