Great Northern Bean Soup with Ham Recipe
My goal was to make this recipe quick and somehow it turns into a 2-day process. Don’t panic – this recipe takes only an hour using an electric power pressure cooker. Be sure to use the print option and add this to your kitchen notebook.
Yum! The apple cider vinegar breaks down indigestible sugars to help digestion. You will also notice a better flavor without adding salt!
This recipe does thicken a little when left on low heat in Electric Power Pressure Cooker for a few hours but not necessary. The Great Northern Bean and Ham Soup soup warm up great after a day in the refrigerator.

NO SOAK Beans
The dried beans in the image below are something you should always have on hand. It is the CHEAPEST more versatile item you can have in the pantry. I have stored dried beans in a cool dry shelf in my kitchen for years and have the recipe come out perfect. The Great Northern Bean can be found in can department but not normally in the fresh produce. The bean is commonly used in Pork & Beans. My family grew up having the Great Northern Bean with ham bone and maybe an onion with a squirt of ketchup if you were lucky!
yes, it is possible! What I did was I added 1/2 the bag of Great Northern Beans ( and a few other ingredients) to the Electric Power Pressure Cooker on the bean setting for 10 minutes. The beans were soft and ready to use as if I soaked them overnight. You will have to add about 2 cups of water and a dash of apple cider vinegar in this mix.
Below is a photo of what the Great Northern Beans look like after being prepared in the Electic Power Pressure Cooker instead of soaking over night.

All the goodness in this soup featured in the photo above before adding the liquid base was just too good to not show! The celery, carrots and spicy jalapeno really added a kick to this soup. I had to put a bowl way in the back of the refrigerator for tomorrow’s lunch of the boys would have eaten all this.
Another family favorite…
