White Bean Ham Hock Soup

When the weather becomes chilly and you just want to keep snug and warm, the best thing to do is cook a huge pot of hearty soup. On days like this, nothing beats our ham and white bean soup. (Maybe some fluffy woolen slippers, but you can’t eat them!)

Ingredients:

A medium package. Of dried Northern beans, I used the 16-ounces sizes.

3 to 4 Meaty-ham hock shank, sometimes, I used also meaty ham bone about.

1 small diced white Onion.

Enough water to cover the beans.

Salt & pepper, to taste

1/3 Cup.Of Light brown sugar.

DIRECTIONS:

-The first step I started with, was to sort the beans for pebbles, and then I cleaned them under cold water.

-In the crockpot, I combined the rinsed beans, with the onion, sea salt, and pepper, as well as the ham shanks hocks or ham, that Iโ€™ve chopped into large chunks before.

-After that, I added enough water to cover the beans by around 2 inches. This could yield approximately 6 to 8 cups.

-Once completed, I covered and cooked over low high heat for approximately 120 minutes, then I reduced to low and continue cooking for an additional 4 to 5 hours, or until beans were tender.

-Following that, I removed the ham shanks or hocks, taking out all of the beef.

-Following that, I returned the meat to the crockpot and added the brown sugar at this stage.

-I found it extremely beneficial to drain around 1 cup of the juice before applying the brown sugar, depending on the thickness or thinness of the beans, and I mixed everything gently to combine.

-And to conclude, I preferred to pour some into individual bowls for serving!
