November 16, 2020  Online Recipe Guide Avatar

1 pound of white beans like Great Northern
2 quarts of water
2-3 pounds of ham shanks or leftover ham pieces, each shank cut into 2 or 3 sections
1 cup of diced onions
1 cup chopped celery
2/3 cup chopped carrots
2 cloves garlic, diced
Tabasco sauce
1/4 cup Fresh parsley, chopped
Salt and pepper to taste


Soak the beans in at least 2 quarts of cold water for about 2 hrs. Drain the water. Put the ham shank pieces in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a simmer and simmer for about an hour. Add the chopped vegetables and beans. Cook for another hour, until the vegetables are soft and the ham meat easily pulls away from the bone. Add 6 drops of Tabasco sauce and the parsley. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serves 8.
