We decided to make this soup at the last minute so instead of the over-night soak, we did a quick-soak...boiling the beans for 2 minutes and letting them rest in the water for an hour. Other than that we followed the recipe. The soup turned out delicious and had great traditional flavor. We served it at a church potluck with some cornbread on the side and it was a hit." - sgrishka

Bills Navy Bean Soup Preparation
1. Pick over the dried beans and discard any debris. Wash and drain. Put beans in a large pot and cover with water. Let stand 8 hours or overnight. 2. The next day, chop celery, carrots and onions into 1/4-inch pieces. (This is easier with a food processor.) Drain beans. Add vegetables, 5 cups water, ham hocks or ham bone, and pepper to taste. Add salt if you wish. Bring to a simmer and cook over low heat for 3 hours or until beans are tender. 3. Remove ham hocks and set aside to cool. Remove meat from bones and cut meat into half-inch pieces. 4. Put 2 cups of the soup into a blender along with the margarine and flour; puree. Pour this puree back in pan. Puree more of the soup if you prefer a smoother texture. Add the chopped ham pieces back into the soup. Simmer for 15-20 minutes until soup is slightly thickened. Yield: 6-8 large servings. This soup is especially good when sprinkled with a few drops of hot pepper sauce just before serving. Recipe By : Jo Anne Merrill Posted to MM-Recipes Digest by "John Weber"
