Hooray! It’s the time of year when soup appears on the menu again. To my mind, there’s nothing better than a hearty bowl of soup served with sliced cheese and toast or cornbread. Yum!
One of the things we’ve enjoyed doing is creating our own dried bean mixture, storing it in quart canning jars, and then making soup with our electric pressure cooker. I’ve got to say, the pressure cooker makes all the difference! Working with dried beans is quick and easy with one of those appliances as opposed to the looong soaking period required without one!
You can find all kinds of information online for making and storing these mixes, but here’s one to get you started. And if you need guidance on what to do with the mixture once you’ve put it together, this is a great recipe to use as a jumping off point!
Happy soup making!
