"A good solid basis for a hearty bean soup -- just a few minor adjustments and it's darn near perfect. An entire pound of bacon isn't necessary for such a small amount of soup; crisping 4-5 slices (st..." See moreill use rendered fat to saute veg) will provide enough porkiness to permeate the beans (I promise). And since celery and onion are being sliced and diced, why not add carrot and garlic to the party? -- they bring lots of flavor and a little color interest as well. I found I needed to add about double the listed liquid to retain a soup-like consistency, but that was just a personal preference. Next time, I'll be sure to double if not triple this recipe as it freezes and reheats beautifully."
"My family really liked this soup! Very heart, good flavor. I loved to use my pressure cooker, so I cooked the beans for 8 minutes, and let sit for 20 minutes and then drained them. I used 4 cans of ch..." See moreicken broth and I cup of water. I used all the ingredients as listed and followed the directions, except for substituting the chicken brother for the 9 cups of water. I cooked the soup at high pressure for 20 minutes. It was quick and delicious. This recipe is a keeper."
