A delicious accompaniment to English Muffin Bread!
Navy Bean Soup
Put (1) 16 ounce package of dried navy beans in a pan and cover with water. Bring to boil. Let boil for 5 minutes. Turn off heat, cover with a lid and let sit overnight. (According to my Mom, this takes the “gas factor” out of the recipe!)
In the morning:
Rinse and drain beans
Put in crock pot and fill 3/4’s of the way up with water
Add one small onion (or 1/2 of a large onion), finely chopped
Add 1 ham hock
Salt and Pepper to taste
Let cook on low all day.
(My Mom said you can also simmer on the stove, just need to pay more attention to it).
