    Default Easter hambone......

    Not much left of that Easter ham except a nice big bone with a goodly
    amount of meat left on it.

    Next comes a pot of pinto beans slow simmered with that hambone and
    some chopped onion.

    Some good ol cornbread baked in a cast iron skillet, take a nice big
    piece and split it, butter it
    and ladle some of those beans and plenty of pot likker over the
    cornbread, put some chopped
    green onions over the top and some hot pepper relish or chow chow.

    Down home, country, belly filling deliciousness.

    dang, I want some right now.


    I remember long ago we had a friend who staunchly refused to eat pinto
    beans, he said they were only good for prison food or cattle feed.
    He missed out on a lot of good eatin.

    We seem to be in a similar time frame with our Easter hams. My ham
    bone is already in the trash, after having spent a good portion of
    today simmering in my stockpot. Navy bean soup is on the simmer as I
    keyboard this. One of the delights of having a bone in ham. I use the
    ham bone in place of the ham hocks:

    @@@@@ Now You're Cooking! Export Format

    White Bean And Ham Hock Soup

    soups and stews

    1 lb dried small white beans such as nav; y or great northern
    1 lb smoked ham hocks
    1/4 cup bacon drippings (from 1/2lb bacon); or olive oil
    2 cups chopped onion
    2 tablespoons minced garlic
    4 fresh thyme sprigs
    8 cups chicken broth

    Soak beans in cold water to cover overnight (8 hours). Drain and rinse
    well.

    Simmer ham hocks in 6 cups water in a 3-quart saucepan, partially
    covered, skimming foam as necessary, 1 hour. Reserve 4 cups cooking
    liquid and drain ham hocks.

    Heat bacon drippings in an 8-quart heavy pot over moderate heat until
    hot but not smoking, then cook onion and garlic, stirring, until
    softened. Add thyme and cook, stirring, 1 minute. Add soaked beans,
    broth, ham hocks, and reserved cooking liquid and simmer, covered,
    stirring occasionally, until beans are tender, about 1 hour. Remove
    ham hocks and shred meat.

    (1# diced tomatoes can be added.)

    People are weird. I love pinto beans. I love beans, period. We eat
    them at least once a week. Our youngest son used to thank God for
    eating beans every single night during our prayers, whether or not we
    ate them that day. He doesn't do it every night now, but when we do, we
    can count on it coming up during prayer time.

    That sounds good, Terry, but if you are using the ham broth do your
    really need the added chicken broth?

    Mine are mayacobas, but yeah. And some of the King Arthur buns, and a
    salad.

    While I certainly enjoy pinto beans in many a dish, my favorite for a ham
    bone is butter beans. The other choice for me is split pea soup. Split
    peas soup at our house is usually done from just ham hocks and maybe some
    diced ham. We went to family for Easter, and the worst part is no left overs
    to enjoy!!

    I tend to use ham bones more for split peas or lentils, but they are
    good in a pot of beans. :-)

    Be sure to post jpegs!

    The only beans I do not care for are limas, black eyed peas and
    garbanzos.

    I love the rest of them. :-)

    I love limas, especially lima bean soup (great use for those meaty ham
    bones). I'm not all that fond of black eyed peas, I'll eat them when
    served and I've prepared literally tons, but I don't remember ever
    buying any. I like garbanzos in salads, I add them to marinated bean
    salad... I don't like them in soups or pureed. But you may like
    chickpeas roasted, they make a great change from salted/roasted
    peanuts and contain far less fat.

    Mine went into a vat of 15-bean soup. Fifteen different kinds of beans,
    not 15 beans total. It's pretty good, although I added some celery
    flakes and julienned carrots (from that carrot-craisin salad recipe) and
    a couple cans of beans ("white" beans and Maya Coba beans). Reminds me
    that I need to take a couple packages of the soup to a former neighbor
    who loves it but is married to a woman who does not. She does the
    cooking.

    I've tried it both ways, with and without the chicken broth. It's
    definitely better with the chicken broth. The chicken broth adds a
    nice balance to the ham broth. Without it, the soup tastes a bit thin.
