BEANS and Cornbread: A Country Staple


     I have published the cornbread recipe on here before and briefly explained how to make the soup beans.  Since I was craving this dish again this winter I decided to give you one of the ways to make the beans for this dish.  Whether using a stockpot or crockpot, this dish cannot be any easier. Soup Beans

  • 2 cups Northern White Beans
  • 1/4 white onion diced
  • 1/2 green bell pepper diced
  • Some ham or hamhock
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • Salt/pepper
1. Place beans in the crockpot and soak in water overnight.
2. Rinse and remove water from night before.
3. Dice up the onion, pepper, and ham and throw in the crockpot.
4. Cover with enough water to be about an inch above the bean mixture.
5. Turn on to low and let cook for up to 8 hours.

I like to once the mixture is done, take a masher and mash up some of the beans in order to make a thicker souper mixture.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Inactive Time: 6-8 hours
Cook Time: 7-8 hours
Serves: 4+

This is one of those simple, yet delicious country staples for any family. You will love it.
