    White Bean and Ham Soup

    Sharn Jean and I were talking about what we were going to have for supper, and realizing that we had a hefty chunk of ham left over from Christmas, it seemed to prudent to see if we could make use of it. So, since it was my idea, I got to fix supper. I figured something different and quick would be in order. Looked, and we had a can of Great Northern beans (My Dad called white beans "Dishwater Beans"...turns out he wasn't the only one) and it all progressed from there. Here's my recipe which is a compilation of several recipes that I found on line; biggest exception is that it is made from canned beans, so the cook time is WAAAAAAY shorter. It turned out way beyond my expections; just enough for two folks and enough left over for my breakfast!

    WHITE BEAN AND HAM SOUP


    Ingredients



    1 can of Great Northern beans

    2 cups (approx.) chopped, cooked ham

    2 tsp Italian Seasoning

    1 Tbsp Olive Oil

    1 Celery rib, chopped

    1 cup (approx) chopped onion

    2 cloves garlic, minced

    1 Tbsp parsley flakes

    Chicken broth to cover



    Add the olive oil, onion and garlic to a medium sized sauce pan and heat until the onions begin to clarify. Stir occasionally.

    Add the ham, parsley, Italian seasoning and enough chicken broth to cover and simmer for 30 minutes or so, stirring occasionally.

    Add the beans and liquid, plus enough chicken broth to cover. Simmer for 15 minutes and serve.

    A dash of Tabasco sauce goes great!

    Yep, forgot to mention, we had cornbread also. Sharn Jean thinks that cornbread is the other half of beans/stew/soup.

    white or yellow meal ?

    sugar or no sugar ?

    Not sure where OK sits on the cornbread demarkation line ;)

    There's no wrong answer, but it is something I learned to ask when in the military.

    With me, it is yellow cornmeal and NO sugar.
    If man had enough horse sense to treat his wife like a Thoroughbred, she'd never grow into an old nag.

    Me too. I don't want my cornbread to taste like cake; I like it hot with lots of butter. Sharn Jean uses the Jiffy corn muffin mix; buy it by the case.

    You have no idea how little it takes. If it weren't for the "likes" I get on this site, I would be an emotional wreck. I take it as a compliment when somebody honks at me or a dog growls when I pass by. As a matter of fact, I've been thinking about sending Giz a PM to see if he will tell me why he is everyone's idol here on GT.
