Yep, also sorry to hear about the burnt hoppin Mosca. But hey, you got right back in the saddle!
I made a big pot of black eyes w/ onions, and a ham bone that still had lotsa ham on it. It turned out good. Next, i’m going to make some Hoppin Pappa w/ the left overs. Just add cooked rice, rotel tomatoes, frozen cut okra, and choped pickled jalapenos… to the ham and peas.
I have a funny family history with the 15 bean soup.My great uncle, Louie, worked at the Michigan Bean Company from the 1920s-1950s.His mother,Anne, used to mix all the leftover beans she had(during the depression)and add salt pork, a ham bone, whatever, and make soup.Uncle Louie brought this idea to his company(which produced the "Jack Rabbit" brand of beans)and thus, 15 bean soup-maybe not THE original, but definately in the midwest.My claim to fame!!LOL[:o)]
Life Happens… Some character named Murphy always seems to get in the way…
LOL, Davydd, I’ve always thought of it as 15 bean soup, and I was wondering which extra one the Goya people put in!
I was ticked off, and determined, so I went to the store and got more ingredients and made the Hoppin’ John anyhow. Hoppin’ John on New Year’s Day brings good luck.
Hmm, annpeeples made a 15 bean soup and Mosca said the same yet it was a 16 bean soup mix. So which bean got thrown out? [;)]
Yeah, that’s the bean soup I made. I started with two bags of the Goya 16 bean mix, and went from there. I put a couple potatoes in; when they cook thoroughly I take them out, mash them, and then put them back in to thicken it.
Sorry to hear about your Hoppin John-I, too just made a wonderful 15 bean soup from my leftover ham at Chritmas.A good consolation on your part, Mosca![:o)]
Ticks me off. I turned it up to get it boiling again when I added the rice, and forgot it. the whole damn kitchen smell burnt now.
Son of a… gun.
I got a huge ham for Christmas, and I’m using it all up. That used a pound of it, anyhow.
At least the ham and bean soup came out great.
Son of a… gun, I burned the Hoppin’ John.
