 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1       pk           (20 oz) 15-bean soup mix
                         -(throw away the flavor
                         -packet!)
    1       lg           Onion, chopped
    1       t            Garlic
    1       t            Celery salt
    2                    Stalks chopped celery
    1                    Bay leaf
    1       d            Cayenne pepper
                         Ground pepper to taste
    1       pk           Polska kielbasa, sliced into
                         -coins (we prefer turkey
                         -kielbasa)
 
   Soak beans overnight, changing water frequently.
   Drain. In crock- pot, cover beans with 1 inch water.
   Add all other ingredients except kielbasa. Cover and
   cook on high for one hour; turn to low and cook
   overnight. Stir once or twice during cooking.  One
   hour before serving, check the texture of the soup. If
   it’s too thin, mash some of the beans with a potato
   masher. Add sliced kielbasa.  Cook for one hour. Serve
   with Tabasco sauce and bread or rice.
   
   Serves 4 generously.
   
   NOTE:  This soup freezes well.  Leftovers are
   excellent (usually thicker from reheating), and are
   delicious served over rice.
