Directions:
1. Place cleaned beans in a large pot.
2. Cover beans with water, add broth, ham, onion, potatoes and seasoning.
3. Cook on medium heat about two hours or until tender.


(When I bake a ham I reserve the broth and place it in quart size ziplock freezer bags filled just over half full.) The leftover ham I dice into very small bits and place in snack size bags, then in a freezer bag. When I need the broth and ham for recipes I just remove what I need. Quick, easy and delicious!
