I just love this bean soup recipe , my mom taught me how to make this years ago but I have changed it a bit to fit my tastes.

You can make this soup with different types of beans if you prefer too.

This soup can be made on the stove top too if you don't have a crock-pot.

How to Make Navy Bean And Ham Soup (in a crock-pot)

Step-by-Step

  1. Sort through the dry beans and dis-guard any bad beans or rocks you may find. Place in water and soak over night with 2 teaspoons of baking soda.
  2. Drain and rinse the beans well.
  3. Chop the onions , carrots and celery , I like to use some of the celery leaves in mine.
  4. Place cut vegetables in a crock-pot with the beans and Add a meaty ham bone that was left over from a previous dinner and extra chopped up ham meat if you want more meat.
  5. Add the left over juice and some of the fat from the cooked ham , it will be jelled once it's cold.
  6. Add the water and the remaining spices.
  7. Cover and let cook for atleast 6 hours and remove the ham bone and remove the ham off the bone and return the meat to the soup ; I like to mash some of the beans at this time , Cook for 2 more hours.
  8. I like to serve my soup with some good ole corn bread....yummy...enjoy!!
