      Arizona Bean Soup Mix in a Jar

      1 pound dried black beans
      1 pound dried red beans
      1 pound dried kidney beans
      1 pound dried navy beans
      1 pound dried great northern beans
      1 pound dried baby lima beans
      1 pound dried large lima beans
      1 pound dried pinto beans
      1 pound dried green split peas
      1 pound dried yellow split peas
      1 pound dried black-eyed peas
      1 pound dried green lentils
      1 pound dried brown lentils

      Combine beans in a very large bowl. Pour two cups of bean mix into attractive 16 ounce jars. The beans can also be layered for a pretty effect. Put in a few beans at a time until you have filled the jar.

      Attach the following to each jar:

      Arizona Bean Soup:

      Beans from jar
      1 smoked ham hock
      2 (14.5 ounce) cans stewed tomatoes
      1 medium onion, chopped
      1 clove garlic, minced
      1 bay leaf
      6 cups water
      1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves or parsley
      1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
      2 teaspoons salt
      1 teaspoon chili powder
      1 teaspoon cumin seed

      Cover beans with water and soak overnight.

      Drain beans and place in a stockpot. Add ham hock, tomatoes, onion, garlic, bay leaf, 6 cups of water and remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Cover and simmer 1 hour or until beans are tender. Remove bay leaf before serving.

      Serve warm. Makes 11 cups of soup.

      Sounds really good with lots of bean variety. DH loves ham and beans so will have to give this a try. Thanks.
