How to make bean soup:

Rinse and soak beans overnight in 4 to 6 cups water, changing water once or twice. In a large pot or Dutch oven, place ham bone, sausage, onion, celery and 3 to 4 cups water. Simmer for a couple of hours. Remove from stove and refrigerate overnight.

Next day, return soup to stove after removing most of fat which rises to top. Heat on medium-low and remove ham bone, leaving as much ham in pot as desired. Add tomatoes, carrots and additional water, if needed. Add potatoes. Increase heat to medium and cook for 1 hour. Drain and rinse beans and add to soup. Simmer for 2 hours. Season with black pepper, salt and hot sauce as desired. Cooking time: 4 to 5 hours. Makes 12 servings.
