This is really more of a main dish than an actual soup. And do add the cabbage. Even cabbage haters will love these beans - they'll never know that the cabbage is in there. It cooks down to give the dish a richness and complexity of taste. This is great stuff. It also freezes wonderfully.
Place the beans in a saucepan and add enough water to cover, then bring to a boil. Let stand for 1 hour, then drain well. Cut up bacon and fry in pan, drain off excess fat, leaving a small amount in the skillet. Add the ham and cook, stirring frequently, until lightly browned. Place the pork mixture in a large casserole and add the vegetables and seasonings. Pour the broth and water over the mixture to cover well, then cover the casserole. Bake in a preheated 300-degree oven for 3 hours and 30 minutes. This makes 15-20 servings.
