Sandy's White Bean Soup

Ingredients

1 pound dry navy beans

3 quarts water

1 ham bone or hock, smoked

2 tablespoons parsley, chopped

1 cup onions, finely chopped

2 garlic cloves, finely minced

2 cups celery, finely chopped

1-1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

2 dashes of hot sauce

Directions

Cover beans with water in large pot or soup kettle and soak overnight.

Rinse beans well and put in crockpot with ham bone and 3 quarts of water, parsley, onions, garlic, celery and tops, salt and pepper, and hot sauce.

Cook on low for 6 hours, or until beans are tender. (Note: I like them almost mushy)

Remove ham bone, dice the meat from bone and add to soup.
