  1. Soak the sugar beans overnight in water. Place the mutton shanks and bacon in a large saucepan with water. Bring to the boil and reduce the heat to a simmer. Cover and simmer until the meat is almost tender two hours
  2. Meanwhile, melt the salted butter in a frying pan and sauté the onions, celery, and carrots until soft, about three minutes.
  3. When the meat is tender, add the sautéed vegetables and sugar beans to the saucepan and simmer, uncovered, for about 30 minutes, skimming the fat off the top regularly. Add the salt, Worcester sauce, and pepper. Reduce the heat and simmer for another two minutes. Serve in soup bowls and garnish with chopped parsley and homemade baked bread on the side. Variation: Use kidney beans instead of sugar beans, reduce the cooking time by 10 minutes, and do not soak the kidney beans overnight in water.

Terrific bean soup recipe. I was specifically looking for an overnight bean stoup and not a pressure-cooked soup. Here I found it. Thank you. 5.00

Thanks for sharing this bean soup recipe. I tried both variations you suggested, but prefer the sugar beans. The sugar beans soak up the sauces. 5.00

This bean soup recipe tastes wonderful. I also tried the baked bread. No-fuss bread recipe with the perfect texture to befriend the soup. Well done. 5.00
