You will love this recipe for canning bean and ham soup. It is one of my favorite pressure canning soup recipes.
Bean and ham soup is one of the easiest soups to pressure can. You don’t even have to cook the beans ahead of time. All of the ingredients go in the jar raw, and then they cook during the canning process.
You will need a pressure canner to prepare this recipe. It is not safe to can beans with a boiling water canner.
