1 lb dried beans, soaked overnight
1 cup of barley or other whole grain, soaked with the beans
1/2 - 1 lb bacon
(1 tsp - 1 tbsp)
Put the beans and grain into a pot or crockpot, add the salt, and put the bacon on top. Cover
with an inch or two of water (depending on how thick you want the soup to be).
Stovetop: Bring to a boil
and then slow cook (several hours at least) on low heat.
Crock pot: Cook on low for 12 - 18 hours.
Mash up the
beans and bacon a little before serving.
