"Pretty good. I like to include celery and bell peppers with the onions and lightly saute before adding beans and water. If fresh hamhocks not available, smoked (easier to find) will suffice, but will alter original recipe flavor."- ghostdog19

Catouchebody 1 year agoVery good! Next time, I'm going use sausage instead of ham hocks, but the recipe is great 'as is.'
