what a delightful gift to give...I am going to be making these, print off
the directions and use for gifts..
*Friendship Soup *
(in this jar are a combination of 7 kinds of dried beans -- 1/4 cup each)

- 1/4 cup kidney beans
- 1/4 cup green split peas
- 1/4 cup yellow split peas
- 1/4 cup pinto beans
- 1/4 cup small white beans
- 1/4 cup lima beans
- 1/4 cup soya beans

1. WASH - the beans thoroughly. Place in a pot , cover with water and
2 tbsp. salt and soak overnight.
2. DRAIN - Add two quarts water and 1/2 ham or ham bones (or bouillion
cubes) Bring to a boil, Stir occasionally -- simmer 2 or 2 1/2 hours.
3. ADD -

- one large onion chopped
- juice of one lemon
- salt and pepper
- 1 large can of tomatoes (29 oz)
