While it’s still cold and soup still sounds good, I wanted to get another soup recipe up here. This is one I adapted from a Food in Jars post, and canned to send to friends and family for Christmas. Even though it has sausage in it, there isn’t a lot, and it has a bunch of vegetables, so it’s pretty healthy.
Start by softening the beans by soaking them overnight or, if you have a pressure cooker, cook them for 30 minutes in that.
Then add some olive oil to a large pot and once it’s hot, cook the vegetables until softened and browned.
Next, add the sausage to the pot and brown it.
