POPIS PŘÍPRAVY :
Delicious bean soup just like grandma made! Take your freshly grown garden beans and turn them into a delight bean soup meal for the family. Best beans to use are navy beans or northern beans. If beans are fresh soak for a few hours in water before using to cook with. If they are dry beans, be sure to soak overnight. (Quick soak by boiling for 2 minutes and let cool for an hour). Boil these ingredients in a large bowl. Drain water from beans and add 2 quarts fresh water, the ham bone (after cutting most of the edible bits from the bone, leaving some to flavor the soup), sage or savory, and a generous quantity of freshly ground pepper. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 75 minutes. Add last ingredients and cook until tender. Remove bone from the soup. If there is any meat on it, trim off and add back into the soup. Dice onion, carrot, and potato. Slice celery and mincegarlic. Add vegetables to the soup, along with 2 teaspoons of salt. Simmer until vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes. Enjoy!
