This is great to cook up one weekend and portion up into family-sized portions and/or potlucks. This recipe makes ALOT! Or you can reduce it to make just 12 servings.
This recipe was developed when requested to make a hearty soup for a fund raiser.
Big Batch Ham and Bean Soup
6 lb dry white beans
7 gallons ham or chicken stock
8 ham bones
4.5 cups finely chopped onion
2.75 cups shredded carrots
2 tsp pepper
3 cups cold water
2 cups all-purpose flour
Rinse white beans in a strainer under cool water, being sure to discard any discolored or damaged beans.
Place rinsed beans in a large kettle with stock and ham bones.
Bring to a boil.
Once boiling, reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 2 to 3 hours or until the beans are tender.
While beans are simmering, prepare the onion and carrots.
After 2-3 hours of simmering, stir the onion, carrots, and pepper into the beans. Cover and simmer for an additional 30 min.
Combine cold water and flour in a separate bowl until smooth and then gradually stir into soup until thickened.
Cook for an additional 10 min. If the soup is too thick, add additional water until desired consistency.
