    While this was a very tasty soup, it did take a while to make. Much ado for soup, but it was worth it to make something from scratch. Flavor was excellent.

    I used 2 huge jars of Northern Beans, added 1/2 of an onion and it was great!! I only mashed about 1 of the jars of beans - I would add one more jar next time and maybe bacon and potatoes!!
