Best Ham and Bean Soup
The best ham and bean soup recipe. Mary Detweiler reports that when she was a cook in a restaurant years ago, this was her best-selling soup. One taste and your family will agree it's a winner!"I made this today, and got RAVE reviews for it. I've made other ham and bean soups and have never liked how they turned out, but this one is a winner! I didn't put the potatoes or the peas in because I didn't have either item, and I cooked it in a crockpot instead of on the stove top, but I think other than that, I made it the same. Oh, and I used dried navy beans that I soaked overnight instead of canned beans, but that's not a huge difference. If anyone is looking for a good way to use up some ham, this is it!" - HavaLyon
