How to make it

  • In a soup pot simmer beans, ham bone, onion, garlic, cumin, water, and broth, partially covered, until beans are tender, about 1 hour. (I usually do this longer - maybe twice as long or more.) Transfer hambone to plate and cool. Cut away ham, discarding bone and fat.
  • Transfer 1 1/2 cups each beans and cooking liquid to a blender or food processor and let cool slightly. Puree mixture and return to pot. Stir in ham, vinegar, sugar, and salt and pepper to taste and simmer. Taste and adjust seasonings.
  • Serve soup with a dollop of sour cream.

    Black Bean soup is one of my all time favorites. My mom used to make it all the time and I can't ever quite match hers, this looks like a close approximation. YUM
