Soaked the beans overnight, left out any added salt, used 6 cups of chicken broth instead of water.
The end product was so salty - absolutely inedible!
If I try this again I would use low sodium broth and no ham hocks or no ham. Those two ingredients added so much salt that what could have been a good soup is just being tossed.
Also recommend halving the recipe unless you are cooking for twenty people
Also good to purée some of the beans and broth and add back to the pot - otherwise the resulting broth is very watery.
8 cups of water would have been too much fluid.
