15 Bean Soup

I put this into the crock pot last night at 2am. Got up this morning at 9:30am and the house smelled fantastic!


1 pound of Hurst's HamBeens Brand 15 bean Soup Mix
4 med-lrg Smoked Hocks
1 quart of vegetable soup stock
2 small cans of diced tomatoes w/green pepper and onion added after beans were cooked 8 hours.
2 large white onions
2 small cans of sweet corn
1 tablespoon of Old Bay Seasoning
1 tablespoon of Weber's Mesquite Seasoning


Let it cook all night and took out the hocks in the morning and removed the bones, then added the fat, skin and meat back into the soup.

then I added the tomatoes

I'm going to let it cook until suppertime this evening and have it with some cornbread.

Sounds delicious except for adding the fat back in. But I've never cooked ham hocks.

Ham Hocks aren't much of anything but skin and fat. Lots of flavor in them when added to a soup or batch of beans like this.

I can't wait any longer to try them. I'm going to mix up some corn bread batter and get it in the oven right now!

My belly is growling.

Smoked hocks provide great flavor to a bean soup. However, you will have a substantial amount of fat to deal with.

No problem for me Andy. I'll just eat it with the beans.

I usually use lean cubed ham or I cut off the fat from the ham hocks.

I love the taste though with the real fat though. If I had a preference I would use real ham hocks.

Just finished a big bowl with two large pieces of cornbread smothered in butter.

OMG, it was really good. Put four quarts in the fridge. I have to rearrange the freezer tomorrow to fit it in there.
