The main cast





I’ve done this from scratch and with canned beans, I cannot tell the difference

The supporting players





Thoroughly rinsed





Veges ready





All together now





Bring to a simmer then cover





Nice yellow color from the ham hocks. I’ll let it sit in the refrigerator for a day or two.





Be back with rest of pics when served

Once again you pictures are a masterpiece, and the soup doesn't look that bad either.

I was eating a candy cane hershey's kiss while the pix downloaded and almost choked when the collander of beans loaded. YOU STOLE MY COLLANDER!!!

I have had that same collander for many many years, it is my favorite.

I really think the secret to the best bean soup is the ham hock. Or, as we've found, a ham bone from a spiral cut HoneyBaked ham, with plenty of meat still on it, makes it really special.

John, you really use all those ham hocks? Mmmmmm....

LOL, we have had ours for at least 25 years; it's indestructible.

Yep, all four. I think we are having one of those hams for Christmas at the kids house. I'll see if I can sneak the hambone out with me.
