Eight Bean and Barley Soup In reply to
Large glass jar (32 oz. minimum)

1/4 cup of each of the following dry beans: pinto, navy, green split peas, pink, and black-eyed peas, black, red kidney and lima.

1/2 C. pearl barley

1/4 C. dehydrated vegetable flakes

2 bay leaves

1 T. salt

2 t. dried thyme

1/2 t. garlic powder

Presentation:

Layer each of the dried beans in the jar one at a time, do not mix or shake. Put all of the other ingredients in a sandwich bag and tie the bag closed with a ribbon. Place the bag in the jar and cover. If you used a screw-top jar, you can put a piece of material around the top and tie on with ribbon. If you used a cork top, tie with ribbon around the outer edge of the jar. Copy the recipe onto a recipe card; punch a hole in the corner, thread it through the ribbon and your gift is done.

Soup Preparation:

Rinse and pick over the beans and peas. Put into a 2-3 quart heavy pot with 1 1/2 cups of water. Cover and bring to a boil. Boil for 2 minutes, remove from heat, let soak for 1 hour. Drain the beans and add 4 cups of water, barley and seasonings. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to low and simmer covered for approximately 2 hours, stirring occasionally, until the beans are tender but firm. Uncover, increase the heat to medium low and boil gently, stirring occasionally, for about 45-60 minutes, until thickened. Remove the bay leaves and serve.

Note: The soup will be thick. Add more water if you would like a thinner consistency.

Ham and Bean Soup In reply to
meaty ham bone
leftover scraps of meat
1 16 ounces can pinto beans
1 16 ounces can black beans
1 16 ounces can black eyed peas
1 16 ounces can great northern white beans (or navy)
1 16 ounces can kidney beans
1 can Progresso lentil soup
6 quarts water
2 medium onions, coarse chopped
28 ounces crushed tomatoes
2 cloves garlic, minced
juice of 1 lemon
1 pinch ginger
2 stalks celery, split lengthwise
1/2 pound ditalini pasta (precooked)
salt and pepper to taste

You may use dried beans for this recipe, soaked in salted water in the refrigerator overnight, but canned beans work just as well, and there's less preparation time. Place ham bone, meat scraps, celery stalks, minced garlic, ginger, and chopped onions in a large stock pot (10 qt). Add approx. 6 quarts of water so the pot is about 3/4 full. Place lid on pot slightly off-center to allow steam to escape. Boil on medium-high heat for 3 hours, adding enough water every 1/2 hour to keep the pot at 3/4 full.

Remove ham bone and take off meat, cutting into small bits, discard fat. Remove meat scraps and cut into small bits, discard fat. Remove celery stalks and discard. Replace lean meat into soup pot. Drain water from all cans of beans and add to pot. Add lentil soup, crushed tomatoes, and lemon juice. Reduce heat to medium.

In a separate pot, boil the 1/2 lb of Ditalini pasta until just tender. Drain and add pasta to the soup pot. Continue to cook on medium heat for 1/2 hr. Add salt and pepper to taste, (we found none is usually needed). Reduce heat to simmer until ready to serve. Makes 15-20 servings. Soup may be frozen.

Bajan Black Bean Soup In reply to
2 1/2 c Dried black beans soaked overnight
1 lg Or 2 small ham hocks
3 To 3. 5 quarts water
3 tb Olive oil
2 To 3 large onions
4 Cloves garlic
3 sm Fresh green peppers (jalapenos if preferred)
8 Berries allspice coarsely crushed
2 ts Brown sugar (or 1 t of molasses)
3 tb Tomato paste
3/4 c Crème fraiche or sour cream
Put the drained beans and hock in a very large pan, cover with the cold water and bring gradually to a boil. Leave to simmer while you prepare the other ingredients.
In a frying pan heat the olive oil, then gently fry the onion, garlic and chili with the allspice and lemon rind, stirring occasionally, until the onions are translucent. Add this mixture to the beans and go on simmering for 2 hours, by which time the beans should be tender. At this point add the sugar, lemon juice, and tomato puree. Cook for another 30 minutes. Add salt if necessary.
Remove the hock, and pick off any meat.
Ladle the soup into bowls, with a spoonful or two of cream stirred in, and serve with a crusty bread.
If you are feeling lavish, a couple of spoons of dark rum added towards the end give a Bajan fillip.
