Directions:
You will need to use your own judgement on the amounts needed for the ingredients -

Wash the beans and soak them overnight. Then simmer them in the water they have been soaked in together with some sliced, smoked picnic ham. Take the meat out after one hour. Cut into bit-sized pieces and put aside.

When the beans are almost fully cooked add the peeled, washed, and diced potaoes, also the scraped and washed carrot, the celery leaves and chopped onions. Cook until the beans are fully cooked. Add the chopped ham to the soup and season soup with salt & pepper to taste. Serve with the freshley diced green onion.

Personal Notes:
This recipe came from a local German Food restaurant that is no longer in business- family health problems, I think. They finally let our local paper publish one of their recipes.
