Great starter recipe. I made the following changes and everyone raved about the texture and flavor.
I made this with leftover honey smoked spiral ham from Christmas dinner. I removed most of the meat from the bone and simmered it for 11/2 hours with 2 bay leaves,which were then discarded. While this was cooking the beans were simmered for 11/2 hours.
Using 5 cups of water from the ham bone and 4 cups of chicken broth I drained and added the beans, ham cut in bite size pieces, tomatoes, onions, celery, 2tbs minced garlic, worcestershire sauce,pepper and two course chopped carrots. A few shakes of Franks red hot and liquid smoke kicked it up a bit.
Simmered this for another 2 hours and served with cornmeal biscuits. Even better the next day.
