Wash beans. Combine beans and 2 qts. water in 8 qt. kettle. Bring to a boil; boil 2 minutes. Remove from heat; cover and let stand 1 hour. (or soak beans overnight.)

Personal Notes:
I find this is a good way to use the ham bone when you make a whole ham. Leave some meat on the bone when you cut the ham, put in the freezer until you are ready to make bean soup.
