comfort food recipes? these recent overdue rains prompted a need for homemade soup. today’s was bean soup: few ingredients, set it on back of stove and forget it for a few hours.
a hint to those ladies who have hunters in their household: tell the guys regardless how heavy that elk is, bring home the neck & entire upper legs! neck bones & meat, or shank bones with meat make the best soup. great way to use up the veggies hiding in back of refrigerator, leftovers, or those just picked from your garden.

bean soup:
1# dry beans (we prefer pinks or baby limas)
1 large yellow onion, coarsely chopped
2# ham shank, cut in hunks. (lots more meat than ham hocks)
1-2 cloves garlic, smashed

soak beans overnight; drain & rinse
toss beans, ham shank, onion in pot, add water to cover plus an inch.
cover and bring to simmer; reduce heat to low.
go play in the snow or take a nap.
2 or 3 hrs later; remove bones; taste & season as per your preference.

can substitute with dried peas; add some chopped carrot
