Servings: Serves 12
Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 3 hours
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
1 thick slice of leftover Spiral Ham, cut into small pieces (not country ham,which is too salty)
4 quart water

1 medium onion, chopped

1/4 cup fresh parsley
Rinse the beans in hot water until they are white. Place them in a stockpot, add the water, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 3 hours. Heat the butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Saute the onion until lightly browned. Add the onion to the pot of beans. Remove two cups of the bean mixture, puree in a blender, and return to the soup. Add to ham to soup mixture. Just before serving, season the soup with salt and pepper to taste.
