"Ham Bone Soup"
Leftover Ham, including bone.
One package of 16-bean soup mix, ham flavor (they sell at Kroger's)16oz.
One onion, diced
Two minced garlic cloves
Two or three celery stalks
Two or three carrots
One small can of tomato sauce, 8 oz.
Rinse and soak the beans the night before in a bowl, covering them with water. In the morning, rinse and drain beans and place in the crockpot. Add ham and cover with water. Add chopped onion and garlic. Dice carrots and celery, add to crockpot also. Add can of tomato sauce. Cook all day on low or half day on high. Usually there is a ham flavor packet included in the beans, I add this later on along with any salt needed. Sometimes I add one tsp. of dried seasonings, such as oregano or thyme, but that is up to you.
