“My Mom created this recipe and I really enjoyed it as a child. As an adult, my taste changed just a bit so I modified her recipe to ‘kick it up’ a bit. It is fabulous even though the ingredients list is quite short! This is a must make with leftover ham and everyone agrees it’s absolutely delicious.”

Ingredients

  • 1 pound dry great Northern beans
  • 1/2 pound cooked ham, diced
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley

Directions

  1. Rinse beans in a large pot; discard shriveled beans and any small stones. Add 8 cups of cold water. Let stand overnight or at least 8 hours. Drain and rinse beans.
  2. Return beans to pot and add ham, onion, brown sugar, salt, pepper, cayenne and parsley and water to cover. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer 1 1/2 to 2 hours, until beans are tender. Add more water if necessary during cooking time.
