Day 315: Ham and Bean Soup

1 pound mixed dry beans

Ham bone
1 1/2 cups ham, cubed
1 large onion, chopped
3/4 cup celery, chopped
3/4 cup carrots, sliced or chopped
1 (15 oz) can diced tomatoes
2 Tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
1 cup tomato juice
6 cups water
2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 bay leaf
1 tsp prepared mustard
1/2 tsp chili powder
Juice of 1 lemon
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper

Place beans in sauce pan. Cover with 6 cups water and soak overnight. Drain the liquid. Combine remaining ingredients in slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW 9-11 hours or 5-6 hours on HIGH. Remove bay leaf and ham bone before serving. Makes 10 servings.

I really enjoyed this soup. It had good flavor and it's pretty healthy for you, since it's not a typical cream-based ham soup. This is perfect to make with your leftover ham from your holiday meals. 3 stars.
