Sarah H. of Muncie, Indiana relates, “My mother spices up navy bean soup with a couple whole cloves, which she removes just before serving. People notice the special taste but can’t identify the source.”
My family really enjoys this hearty soup, which is perfect for a wintry day. Bacon, molasses and onion add great flavor. A friend from Massachusetts gave me the recipe years ago, and I've made it countless times since then.
On a chilly day, what could be more comforting than a pot of this homemade soup simmering on the stove? The mix of ham, beans ans squash is such a hearty combination, you'll savor every steamy spoonful.
