A lot of people are trying their best to make their dollars stretch these days, and I totally get it! A few weeks ago, I did a big stock up on groceries, and based my list on foods and meals that could stretch my grocery budget to the max. I found a spiral ham on sale for 99 cents per pound, and incorporated that one ham into two dinner meals, and one breakfast for my family of six. There was also leftover meat for sandwiches! This ham and bean soup recipe is the second dinner meal that we made with the leftover meat on the bone of the ham.
This ham and bean soup recipe is very easy to whip together, and will cost just a few dollars to make if you use the leftover meat on your ham bone. It will feed a family of six, and is great served with freshly baked bread or rolls.
How long does ham and bean soup last?
You can store leftover ham and bean soup in and airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
What to put in beans to prevent gas?
You’ve heard the saying I’m sure:
Beans, beans, the magical fruit
The more you eat, the more you toot,
The more you toot, the better you feel
So let’s have beans for every meal!
Most people don’t appreciate the gassy affect that beans have on you, but the good news is that there is a way to reduce the amount of gas that you may experience from eating beans. Simple add a little bit of baking soda to the pot of soup to help break down some of the gas-making sugars that are natural in beans.
