Bean and ham soup is one of the easiest soups to 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.

Ingredients (per quart jar):

3/4 c. dried white beans
3 tbsp. chopped ham
1 tbsp. chopped onion
1 tbsp. chopped carrot
3 tsp. chopped celery
2 tsp. chicken bouillon
1/4 tsp. salt or liquid smoke

Rinse beans. Place 3/4 c. dried beans in each jar. Add remaining ingredients.

Canning Instructions:

Fill the remainder of the jars with boiling water, leaving 1 inch head space. Wipe rims of jars with a clean dish towel and place lids and rings on jars.

Process jars in pressure canner at 10 pounds pressure for 70 minutes for pints and 90 minutes for quarts. Remove jars from canner and let cool until lids seal.

Yield: Varies
