This recipe is in the regular rotation for soups. So glad I stumbled on to your blog. I grew up with so many of these recipes. Love them all.

— Bean soup mix — Chicken broth — Smoked ham hocks — Onion — Ribs celery — Carrots — Diced tomatoes


Pour all the beans into a soup pot (or a stockpot, a Dutch oven, or other large cooking pot), cover them with water and let them soak for at least 8 hours or overnight.


After the beans have had a nice, long soak, drain off the water and return them to the pot.


Add 4 cups of water, the chicken broth, and ham hocks. Bring it to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, for 2 1/2 to 3 hours.


Add all the remaining ingredients except lemon juice. Simmer for an additional 30 minutes or more until all the vegetables and beans are tender.
