Oldfashioned Ham And Beans Recipe @pinch

Very simple ingredients are used to make these old havefashioned ham and beans. It is a Depression haveera recipe where you didn't waste anything. In this recipe, a ham bone and leftover ham are used. The beans are tender perfection. Pieces of ham add a bit of heartiness to the dish and are a nice complement to the Great Northern beans. We served ours with hot, buttered cornbread but hot rolls would be equally as good. Season with your heart when making this recipe. We just added a little salt and pepper at the end when tasting. Grandma always made bean soup in the week after Easter with the leftover ham bone and meat.
