Bean Jar Soup Recipe

Bean Jar is a local dish of the Channel Island of Guernsey. This recipe was traditionally made in pottery jars or bean jars that were cooked overnight in the local bakers oven. I have tweaked the recipe a little to make it easier for your book club party.

Prep:  15 minutes | Soak Beans:  8 hours | Cook:  6 1/2  hours | Serves:  8
