Bean soup

This is my bean soup recipe - everyone loves it.

Ham bone  and fat from cooked ham- 1
Left over ham - diced - 2 cups
Navy beans or northern beans - 2 pounds
Bacon - 1 pound
Salt and pepper - to taste

Boil clean ham bone and fat for four hours.  Remove bones and fat - save broth.
 Prepare dried beans according to package to cooking stage.  Add beans and chopped onion to ham broth.  Cook for two hours - until beans are desired consistency.    

Fry or broil bacon.  Chop. 

Before serving add bacon, diced ham, salt, and pepper to broth.  Stir and serve hot.
