This Beans & Greens soup with Ham is a great meal to prepare in bulk and enjoy as the weather cools. The soup features pinto beans, collard greens, and mustard greens, turnip greens all filled with flavor from the ham bone. 

Makes 7 - 2 cup servings 

Prep Time: Overnight bean soak 8 hours + 15 minute prep. 

Cook Time: 4-6 hours 

INGREDIENTS:

1 Bag Pinto beans

1 large onion, chopped 

1 Ham Bone

1 Bay leaf 

2-3 tsp. salt

1 tsp pepper (or to taste)

8 oz Bag Combo Greens (collard, mustard, and turnip) or any combo of these greens per your preference

 10 cups water 

Directions:

Soak beans overnight or with quick soak method. Before each method sort and rinse beans.  For the quick soak: Boil ~ 8-10 cups of water then add beans. Allow beans to boil for ~ 2 minutes. Remove from heat and let soak for 1 hour. Drain beans and rinse under fresh water. For overnight method: Add the beans to ~8-10 cups of water and allow to soak overnight. In the morning drain water and rinse beans. Soaked beans are now ready to be prepared*

In a large pot add soaked beans, ham bone, onions, bay leaf, salt, pepper, and water. Bring to boil then reduce heat to low and allow to cook stirring periodically.  The last hour of cooking add the greens and continue cooking. When the soup is complete remove the ham bone. Allow to cool then remove the excess meat from the bone and add to the soup.

 If freezing, separate into single serve portions to cool quicker. Once cooled seal in air tight containers or freezer bags, date, label, and place in freezer.
