Found this recipe in "now out of print farm magazine" 12-15 years ago. Have never had occassion to use this recipe. When I decided to copy, I thought, why not? It could be used for church funtions, fund raisers, large family reunion. Easy to follow recipe and sounds totally delicious. If anyone needs a big batch bean soup, this is it.
