“It's a long list of ingredients... but sooo good. My mother made the best Ham and Bean Soup, my recipe is AS CLOSE to hers as I can remember; today my own family and friends love this soup. Oh, my hubby insists this soup alone would be worth another proposal!”

Original recipe yields 12 servings

Directions

  1. Place dry beans and 3 cups of water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, cover, remove from heat, and allow to stand for 1 hour. Drain and rinse beans.
  2. Place 3 more cups fresh water into a large pressure cooker. Add the soaked beans and ham bone, and stir in parsley, bay leaves, dried onion flakes, garlic, thyme, dry mustard, chili powder, and paprika. Seal the pressure cooker, and heat to 15 pounds per square inch. Cook under pressure for 7 minutes; add 1 minute for every 1,000 feet above sea level. Remove from heat, and allow pressure to subside naturally.
  3. When pressure has reduced, open the lid of the cooker. Stir in 5 more cups of water, celery, olive oil, tomato puree, ketchup, chicken soup base, molasses, brown sugar, and cracked black pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer the soup until the beans are tender, about 45 minutes. Stir in shell pasta, and simmer until the pasta is tender, about 15 more minutes.

This was a very good and versitile recipe. I made it twice in a week. First time I used lg lima beans, a smoked turkey leg and chopped up plum tomatoes turned out great. I shared it with my friends and family. Second time was because my daughter's boyfriend & mother-in-law brought home a ham bone from Easter and ask that I make them some soup like I made the first time. Everyone loved it. Thank your mom for sharing and thank you for posting it. Im sure I will be making it for years to come. YUMMY =]

I used leftover spiral glazed ham, did not include the celery and used canned beans ... and it was fast AND delicious! All of this spices (which I happened to have had on hand) created a very tasty soup!

My family LOVED this recipe! This one for sure is a KEEPER! I will be making this again and again. The recipe is very interchangeable if you don't have all the ingredients that are listed.
