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
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.
