Preparation Method:
  1. Place rinsed beans into a large pot with 3 quarts of chicken or vegetable broth and bring to a rapid boil.
  2. Add all the ingredients except for the ham.
  3. Reduce heat and cover and continue cooking for 60 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Add the chopped ham and continue to simmer for another 60 minutes or until the beans are soft.
