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
Smoked sausage or Kielbasa sliced
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.
