    Don't be put off by the metric measures, just use the Zaar converter. Soaking the beans is not included in the timing.

      This is easy to make. You do need to keep checking the water level, so the the beans do not boil dry and burn. I enjoyed the hint of sweetness from the honey. You'll be surprised how much flavor this soup has. So don't forget that bay leaf as it really adds to this soup. Made for team Soup-A-Stars during ZWT9 2013

      Made as directed. This takes a while, but it's easy as it mostly does its own thing for hours! :) At the end, great flavors emerge! I probably added about another 1-2 cups of water while cooking so that the beans didn't dry out. Thanks, Annacia! Made for Photo Tag.
