  1. In a large soup kettle, combine the beans, water, salt and baking soda.
  2. Bring to a boil, cover, and simmer for 5 min. Remove from the heat, skim off foam, re-cover, and let stand for 2 hour. (The beans can also be soaked overnight if you prefer.)
  3. Add in the remaining ingredients except the parsley and simmer, covered, for about 1 1/2 to 2 hrs. Watch beans, for the cooking time will vary and the beans shouldn't get mushy. Remove the ham bone and dice any overly large pcs of meat and return to the soup. Add in the parsley just before serving.
  4. This soup freezes very well.
  5. NOTE: In every Amish and Mennonite restaurant, you will find bean soup on the menu, though in their homes it is eaten mostly in the winter. At some tables, a cruet of vinegar is passed to sprinkle on the soup. Cornbread is the perfect accompaniment.
