I really liked this soup! It had wonderful flavor, but I did make some alterations. I found that 1 hour soaking with hot water wasn't quite enough, so I put the beans in a pot with water to cover them with an additional 2 more inches of water. Then BOIL the beans for 5 minutes, take off from heat, and then let them sit for 1 hour. DRAIN the bean water off..To the stockpot ADD 64 ounces of chicken stock, the beans and all the rest of the ingredients, though I used more celery, about 5 ribs of celery. I also pureed about 1/3 of the soup and added it back to the pot, before adding the diced ham pieces. I found this soup to be QUICK, FLAVORFUL and SATISFYING..
