Classic Ham & Bean Soup have to have super powers. Even even though it has no arms, it hugs me just like the Boy in Margery Williams’ The Velveteen Rabbit hugs his favorite bunny.
I just ate a bowl full of this deliciousness and really feel so darn cozy, warm & snuggly correct now. I really like it and especially really like it served in excess of a thick slice of skillet cornbread.
That’s what I’m talkin’ about!!
The principal explanation Classic Ham & Bean Soup impacts me so strongly is it reminds me of my dad. My dad manufactured the best Navy Beans & Ham (dad used navy beans). Each and every time I make bean soup, I picture Dad standing in the kitchen, lifting the ham bone out of the large soup pot and picking the juicy meat off the bone. I see him tasting it, picking the best seasonings and sprinkling to his heart’s material. He in no way followed a recipe – he followed his senses and always received it just proper. Sadly, I by no means took notes or watched him as closely as I ought to have, but I believe he would be proud of my efforts.
Classic Ham & Bean Soup is an greatest comfort meals for me. It reminds me of house. It reminds me of my dad.
Two of my other favourite Simply Sated bean recipes are White Chicken Chili and Apple Brown Sugar Baked Beans.
