Posts Tagged ‘bean with bacon soup, canning soups, farm life’

Today I had bean with bacon soup for lunch  that I’d canned a few months ago and I thought I’d share the recipe. I only have one picture which I’ll share at the end.

2lbs dried navy beans – soaked overnight, or “quick soaked” by bringing to a boil, boiling for 2 minutes then allowing to sit for 30 minutes and rhen draining.

2 qts tomato juice (or a thin sauce)

3 cups chopped onions

2 lb bacon or ham

2 cups sliced carrots

3 cups diced celery

Black pepper

2 bay leaves

1 tbsp cumin

1 cup brown sugar (to taste)

(No need for salt due to bacon or ham)

Combine beans, carrots, celery, tomato juice, pepper and cumin. Cook on medium.

Meanwhile, fry bacon to cripsy, remove and drain well on paper towels. Fry onions until soft and also drain well, then add to bean mixture.

Add brown sugar to taste.

Simmer a while (30-45 minutes – you may need to add water to make as “soupy” as you like).

Remove bay leaves

Fill hot sterilized jars leaving 1″ headspace. Remove air bubbles and wipe rims with a paper towel dampened with vinegar.

Pressure quarts for 90 minutes at 11lb pressure (adjusted for your altitude)

Pints pressure 75 minutes.
