Soak your beans using your preferred method. Rinse and cover with plenty of water (2-4″). Add ham bone, olive oil, & bay leaf. You may add your spices now if you’d like. Cook on low temp. until nearly done or about 1 hour before you want it to be done, then adjust water as needed and add everything else except vinegar, salt, & pepper; which you’ll add before you serve.

*if you don’t have a ham bone, use beef or chicken or ham stock you have on hand or equivalent amount of bouillon. Can also use the seasoning packet found in the HamBeens 15 Bean Soup.
