Bean Soup

Came across an old recipe for Bean Soup my Mom or some family member had written down and wanted to pass it along, enjoy!

Bean Soup
1 (16 ounce) package dried navy beans
7 cups water
1 ham bone
2 cups diced ham
1/4 cup minced onion
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 pinch ground black pepper
1 teaspoon roasted ground cumin
1 teaspoon dried cilantro
1 bay leaf
1/2 cup sliced carrots
1/4 cup sliced celery

1 - Place rinsed beans into a large stock pot. Add water and bring to a boil. Boil gently for 2 minutes; remove from heat, cover and let stand for 1 hour.
2 - Add ham bone, cubed ham, onion, salt, pepper, cumin, cilantro, and bay leaves. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, cover and simmer for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until beans are soft. Occasionally skim service of soup while it is cooking.
3 - Add carrots and celery, cook until tender. Remove ham bone, scrape any meat from bone and place back into soup and serve.
