This recipe is one of my mom’s go-to leftovers recipes. It’s an easy way to get rid of loads of ham from Christmas or Easter dinner! True story. Easy peasy. That’s why I approve of it as well. You can find the ingredients and simple instructions below.
- 1 pound dry navy beans (then soaked overnight)
- meaty ham bone
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon pepper
- ½ cup chopped celery leaves
- 1 medium onion
- 1 bay leaf
- 7 cups water
- Soak beans overnight. Combine all ingredients (including soaked beans) in a crock pot, cover, and cook for 5-6 hours on high or 10-12 hours on low. Enjoy!
Combine and let cook . . . super straightforward!
Once the soup is all cooked up just settle in and enjoy!
