Basic Ham and Bean Soup
Very good recipe. I don't usually change things up - not that brave. But I read reviews and did the following:
3 celery stalks
4 c water/ 4 c chicken broth
I sauteed the onion, celery, garlic before adding.
I also added a can of condensed milk - loved this addition. Made it more creamy, thickened it.
I used the crock pot. PUt beans in the boiling water, let sit for an hour. Than cooked on high 4 hours, OPened up, took the meat off the bone. Cooked 3 more hours. Opened, added more ham and milk. Let cook about an hour more. Very good.
