Great Northern Bean Soup

Postby Mike B » Sun Oct 23, 2011 7:25 pm

Unless you have a lot of briquettes, this recipe should probably be done over a camp stove. It takes 4 hours to make.

1 lb dried great northern beans
1 smoked ham hock
8 cups water
1 medium onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium carrot, shredded
1/4 cup parsley
1 cup mashed potatoes or 1/3 cup instant potato flakes
Salt and pepper to taste
Parsley or chives for garnish
1 8 quart Dutch oven (12" deep or 14")

Place the beans and enough water to cover in the Dutch oven. Bring to a boil and boil for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and let the beans soak for 1 hour. Drain and rinse the beans.

Put the beans back in the Dutch oven, along with the water and the ham hock. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat; cover and simmer for 2 hours. Skim any fat if necessary.

Add the onion, carrot, parsley, potatoes, salt and pepper, then simmer for 1 hour longer. Remove the meat and bones from the soup.

Remove the meat from the bones, dice it and return to the soup. Heat through. Garnish with parsley or chives.

That sounds like a great combo..Almost the same recipe that I use to use up the rest of a hambone just in a smaller size.

Thanks for the instant mashed potato idea..

Funny thing - I made some more of this a couple of weeks ago, and made up a mess of cornbread to go with it. Great minds surely think alike!

:D
