Winter Bean Soup

It's raining, it's pouring....and the kindergarten class is taking part in an outreach program, so why not lend some support by making an easy and delicious Winter Bean Soup?

1 bag of beans and spices
1 28 ounce can tomatoes (chopped)
1 8 ounce can tomato sauce
1 large onion (chopped)
1 ham hock, diced ham or 6 Italian sausages (hot or sweet, precooked and crumbled)
juice from 1 lemon
salt and pepper to taste
*saltine crackers

1. Rinse beans and place in a large kettle with 2 quarts of water or chicken broth.
2. Boil for 2 hours.
3. Add remaining ingredients and cook for 1 hour longer.
4. Stir frequently, adding more water or broth if necessary.
5. Serve with toast or crackers or cheese.
