Bean Soup Mix Gift Mix

1 lb dried black beans
1 lb dried red beans
1 lb dried kidney beans
1 lb dried navy beans
1 lb dried great northern beans
1 lb dried baby lima beans
1 lb dried large lima beans
1 lb dried pinto beans
1 lb dried green split peas
1 lb dried yellow split peas
1 lb dried black eyed peas
1 lb dried green lentils
1 lb dried brown lentils

Combine beans in a very large bowl. Pour
two cups of bean mix into pretty 16 ounce
wide mouth jars. Instead of mixing the beans
together, you can layer the beans. Very pretty.
Just use about 1/8 cup of each bean until
you fill the jar.

Attach this to the Jar:
Bean Soup Mix
Bean Mix from jar
1 smoked ham hock
2 cans, (14.5 oz) each stewed tomatoes
1 medium onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 bay leaf
6 c water
1/4 c fresh parsley
1 T red wine vinegar
2 tsp salt
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin seed

Cover beans with water and soak overnight.
Drain beans and place in a stockpot. Add ham hock,
tomatoes, onion, garlic, bay leaf and 6 cups of water.
Bring to a boil over medium high heat, cover and simmer
1 hour or until beans are tender. Remove bay leaf before
serving. Serve warm.
Makes 11 cups of soup.
