Hearty Ham & Bean Soup Recipe

Ham & Bean Soup Recipe

Not only is upcoming autumn sweater weather, but it's also soup weather in my opinion! I love a good bowl of hot soup on a Friday night before attending a high school football game. And this week, I am sharing an original recipe of my Hearty Ham & Bean Soup!

Ham & Bean Soup Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 Ham Hock
  • 6 to 8 cups of water
  • 32 oz box of Swanson’s chicken broth
  • 48 oz jar or Great Northern fully cooked beans
  • 1 pound of baby carrots
  • 3 stalks of celery including the greens
  • 3 small potatoes
  • 1 small sweet Vidalia onion
  • salt & pepper to taste

Notes

In a large stockpot or Dutch oven, place the ham hock in the bottom, pour the chicken broth over it and add water to cover the bones. Gently boil covered for 45 minutes to one hour, until meat starts to fall off the bones.

While the ham is cooking, prepare the vegetables. Chuck the baby carrots, dice the potatoes, dice the celery (including the greens), and finely chop the onion.

Remove the ham hocks, set aside to cool. Add the vegetables to the broth and boil covered for 20 to 30 minutes. Add the jar of Great Northern beans.

Simmer while you debone the ham hocks. Stir often and add water if needed. Discard the bones and skin. Cut or break the meat into small pieces. Add ham pieces back into soup. Add salt and pepper to taste.
