Unless you have a lot of briquettes, this recipe should probably be done over a camp stove. It takes 4 hours to make.

1 lb dried great northern beans
1 smoked ham hock
8 cups water
1 medium onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium carrot, shredded
1/4 cup parsley
1 cup mashed potatoes or 1/3 cup instant potato flakes
Salt and pepper to taste
Parsley or chives for garnish
1 8 quart Dutch oven (12" deep or 14")

Place the beans and enough water to cover in the Dutch oven. Bring to a boil and boil for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and let the beans soak for 1 hour. Drain and rinse the beans.

Put the beans back in the Dutch oven, along with the water and the ham hock. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat; cover and simmer for 2 hours. Skim any fat if necessary.

Add the onion, carrot, parsley, potatoes, salt and pepper, then simmer for 1 hour longer. Remove the meat and bones from the soup.

Remove the meat from the bones, dice it and return to the soup. Heat through. Garnish with parsley or chives.

That sure does look good Mike B. I have my wood cook stove going now so that will be a good thing to put on there and have for dinner tomorrow. Bean suop always tastes better the next day. Add some home made sour dough rolls and home made butter, what a meal Thumbs Up Thumbs Up Small side salad. Thanks for posting

You are welcome. I did a variant of this last week - ham and beans. I used a leftover ham bone from Christmas and a pound of pinto beans. This kind of meal hits the spot when it is 11 degrees outside, which it was at the time.

BTW, I had the ham and beans with cornbread, too.
