  1. In a large bowl, combine the beans with the water, cover and let soak overnight.
  2. In a large pot over medium high heat, combine the soaked beans with water, carrots, onion and ham. Add more water to cover all, if necessary. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and let simmer for 4 to 6 hours. Add ketchup just to get desired color. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

This is a excellent soup. I followed the recipe to the letter. My family has a big "Soupfest" the Saturday after Christmas every year and this recipe was a really big hit. I made up a pan of ...

My kids loved it and my husband (who generally doesn't like bean soup) had seconds. Very easy and very good. I've made it twice already, next time I think I'll use a blend of beans for variety.
