Savory Bean Soup

1 small ham (just a few pieces)
1 lb bean soup mix
6 c. water
2 tsp. salt
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic
1 bay leaf
1 tsp. basil
2 cups solid pack tomatoes
1/2 cup chopped red peppers
1/2 cup chopped green peppers
1-3 tsp. chili powder
1 Tbsp. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
2 tsp. each chopped parsley, celery, paprika, lea and perrins (worcestershire sauce), lemon juice

Place ham, beans, H20, salt in pot-cover and cook until beans are tender--add rest cover and simmer at least 1 - 1 1/2 hours.

Dad used to always made bean soup--I guess he got his taste for it from Grammy.

Such a great recipe for a cold winter day. Oh! And it looks gluten, soy and dairy free, too. Yay!
