Soup's On

Our first freeze of the season came last night, blanketing the landscape in a hoar frost.

We still had plenty of flowers in bloom, yet sadly no more.
It's the perfect time to warm up with a hearty bowl of homemade soup.



Navy or Northern Beans
Cabbage
Onions
Carrots
Celery
Ham Hock
Smoked sausage or Kielbasa sliced
Chicken Stock
Bay Leaf
Garlic powder 
Salt and Pepper

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, or your favorite loaf of crusty bread.
Yum !

That soup is almost too pretty to eat. Really, it looks delicious, and with buttermilk cornbread, oh my goodness. I was thinking of putting on a pot of homemade vegetable soup for tomorrow. Tonight should be our first freeze...29 degrees they're saying. The colors in your last post are so beautiful.

Mmm perfect soup for colder days. We have a bean soup here but no where near as tasty as yours

I'm a little late to the soups on. I seem to be into bean soups these past few years as they are easy to do, and taste good with a few alterations :) Yours is being added to my something new to try.
