  • Extremely flavorful and simple to make! Beans held up to freezing well and tasted just as savory re-heated. Simmering soup for hours makes you feel like such a good cook!

  • I believe this is the recipe I found on the internet last year. It was so wonderful I meant to put it in my recipe folder. I did not! I am so thankful to find it again! My husband was positive carrots and stewed tomatoes do not belong in bean soup. He could not stop eating!! It has been a family favorite (and our family is big!) for all occasions. Thank you so much!
