Soup's On

A dark and dreary day.
We awoke to a freezing fog, the landscape blanketed with a hoar frost.
The perfect time to warm up with a hearty bowl of homemade soup.

Navy or Northern Beans
Ham Hock
Smoked sausage or Kielbasa sliced
Chicken Stock
Bay Leaf
Salt and Pepper
Rosemary to taste.

Soak beans overnight, discard water, add chicken stock, ham hock, smoked sausage, herbs, and seasoning, bring to the boil and then simmer for one hour.
Add chopped cabbage, onions, carrots, celery, continue to simmer for an additional hour and a half.
Add water if needed.

Serve with buttermilk cornbread.
Yum !
