Ham and beans are one of my favorite easy recipes! Tonight I made it with beef broth and I think it was better than the chicken stock standby I have always enjoyed. BIG SECRET though: chop some onions in a little vinegar and sugar and use on top as a condiment and you might think you’ve gone to heaven!

I agree with everything except using a slotted spoon to serve. I want lots of the juice on my cornbread. that is the best part.
