Wow, this soup is amazing! For those who would like to adapt this to dry beans, here is how I did it: 1) Soak 1 lb dry navy beans overnight 2) Drain navy beans and rinse 3) Place in dutch oven with enough water to cover by 1 inch and boil for 10 minutes 4) Drain and rinse beans again (this is to greatly decrease the musical effect of the beans) 5) Repeat step 3, but boil for 1 hour. 6) Follow the rest of the recipe as indicated, except you should probably not simmer homecooked beans too long, as they break up more readily than the canned (I cooked mine for an additional 25 minutes in the soup, and they were mostly whole, but enough of them broke apart that the soup became a bit thicker than the author's picture - which is how I like it). Good luck!
