I have made ham and beans from scratch for years....it makes a vat of soup. I would invite the family in, take it to friends etc. There are only the 2 of us now, and I didn't want a vat of soup. I had seen the cans of great northern beans in the store, so grabbed up a couple and decided to experiment. I already had some leftover ham chunks and a smoked ham hock. This way, still made several servings, probably 8, but no where near the vat, I used to make. Since you don't have to soak the beans overnight, it can be made in a morning for lunch. :o)
