WWII Red Beans and Ham

Here’s another recipe adapted from my WWII cookbook. I wasn’t too sure about this one and the guys DEFINITELY weren’t sure, but it turned out pretty tasty! One of my sons quipped, “Maybe war rations aren’t so bad after all?”  I served it with carrots from our “Victory Garden” and home canned pears. Just doing my bit… ;o)

2 cans kidney beans, undrained

1/2 cup chopped onion

4 cloves minced garlic

2 stalks chopped celery

1 green pepper, chopped

leftover cut up ham

salt & pepper, to taste

Pop everything into a large saucepan and heat over medium heat until everything is hot and the veggies are tender.

Serve over cooked rice.
