it's been nearly six years my initial review below. Nothing has changed in reference to this recipe. I continue to serve it to not only my family, but numbers of friends. I make it from scratch soaking the beans and then putting everything together. I generally use either a black forest or honey ham for the meat. Even my vegetarian daughter loves this..just removes the meat and gobbles it down. This is a winner for a warm comfortable and nourishing bowl of soup and is excellent serve with a nice piece of warm French bread and butter. It's a great meal, doesn't take long to make, and is always a winner!
