Beans and Ham

Beans and Ham, homemade bread and jam

Beans and Ham
Soak 3 C dry beans overnight. Drain. In a large pot combine beans with a leftover ham bone. Cover beans with water. Cook on low heat for 6-10 hours until beans are soft and all remaining meat has pulled off of the bone.

My grandmother used to make this recipe with leftover ham bones she got from her cousin who owned a catering company. I love how the house smells when the beans are cooking. My husband LOVES this meal. However, I could not convince my 6 year old son that it was tasty. I even told him that if he ate it he would be able to fart all night (first graders love that stuff.) He didn't fall for it. I ended up bribing him with leftover cake.
