Ham and Bean Soup

This rich, hearty soup is a GREAT winter or rainy day soup. It is goes great with fresh veggies, homemade bread or rolls, corn bread, and more!

*4 c ham hock broth (see Stoneyfield Ham Broth recipe)
*4 c cooked beans (I like mixed, pinto, or navy)
*1/2 c tomato sauce
*1 c chopped celery
*1 c chopped carrots
*1 c chopped onion
*2 cloves minced garlic
*1/2 tsp basil
*1/2 tsp oregano
*1/4 tsp thyme
*1/4 tsp pepper
*1 bay leaf (remove before serving)

*This recipe can be played with quite a bit – adding and taking out ingredients. You can also substitute dried ingredient equivalents in place of fresh.


Ham and Noodles

This is one of Ethan’s favorite recipes! It goes great with mashed potatoes, corn/corn casserole, green beans, fresh veggies, fresh bread/roll, and much more!

*Boil ham hock broth
*Add enough homemade egg noodles or purchased home style noodles to fill the pot of boiling broth – continue boiling until cooked
* Add salt to taste

**To thicken ham and noodles, you can allow noodles to sit on low heat for a bit after they are done cooking.
