15 Bean Soup Revisited

I was asked for the recipe so here goes:

Buy a ham.  Doug likes the honey glased spiral sliced ones.  Cook it.  Eat or give away as much as you can.  When it’s down to the bone and some meat that is impossible to cut off, put it in a freezer bag and put it in the freezer or refrigerator.  This depends on if ham still sounds good or the thought of it makes you loose lunch.  This is what I buy if I don’t all ready have it laying around:

  1. Bag of 15 beans(1lb?)
  2. Meaty hambone or a hamsteak.
  3. Large white onion, chopped.  I’m not one to measure too much.
  4. About 4 cloves of garlic, chopped.
  5. Thyne, the powdery stuff, a good sprinkle?
  6. 1 or 2 can diced tomatoes.  I get ones that have various spices and such in them.  I keep several on my shelf and have been known to close my eyes and pick one or two.  There is also Rotel.  Try picking something that you have never heard of.  Food Lion has fresh salsa that is really good.
  7. A can of tomato sauce.
  8. Chili powder, a tablespoon.
  9. A tablespoon lemon juice.
  10. Baby carrots.  Cut the fatter ones length-wise.
  11. Pepper.

I’ve got to go.  Continued tomorrow.
