Soup Beans

Christmas ham is now gone.  When I buy a ham I like to buy a Butt Ham.  I prefer the bone in ham because after we are done eating the ham I take what is left and cook it in Great Northern Beans.  Soup beans and corn bread hits the spot on a cold winter night!  I like to eat mine with corn bread mixed in but the guys eat theirs with corn bread and ketchup mixed in their beans.  Ketchup seems gross to me but they say it is good, they will not eat them plain.

Soup Beans

1 bag great northern beans
1 ham bone with meat still on it

I do a quick soak on my beans, put beans in a large pot and cover with water.  Bring beans to a boil and boil for 2 minutes.  Remove beans from the stove, cover and let sit for an hour.

Put ham bone and beans into a crock pot and cover them with water.  Cook beans on high for 6 to 7 hours or until beans are tender.  Remove bone from soup and pull of any meat and put it back into the soup...enjoy!
