This is another recipe from my friend Nicke.

1 lb Great Northern beans, soaked overnight

2 tbsp oil

2 carrots, chopped

2 onions, chopped

1 tsp thyme

1 pinch red pepper flakes

2 can chicken broth (26 oz total)

1 quart water

1 meaty ham bone

Rinse beans and set aside.  Saute carrots and onions in oil until onion is translucent (approximately 10 minutes).  In stockpot, put the vegetables, beans, broth, water, spices and ham.  Bring to a boil, and simmer 1.5 hours, or until beans are falling apart.  Remove ham bone from soup and defat and debone the ham.  Add chopped  ham meat to the soup.  Can put half the soup throught the blender, for a thicker, creamer soup.
