    2 1/2   qt           Water
    1       c            Dried cranberry or kidney be
    2       lb           Smoked meaty ham hocks, cut
    3                    Large carrots, sliced crossw
    1                    Large onion, chopped
      1/2   c            Chopped fresh parsley
    1                    Clove garlic, minced or mash
    1       t            Dry mustard
    4       oz           Uncooked lasagne, broken
    1       oz           Bleu cheese, crumbled
      1/2   lb           Cabbage, finely shredded
                         Salt to taste
 
   Place beef bones in kettle, cover with water, bring to
   a>>> boil, reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 4 hours.
   Chill bones and broth and remove fat from surface. Add
   beans and ham hocks, heat to boiling, reduce heat,
   cover, and simmer for 2 hrs. more. Chill and remove
   fat from surface; remove meat from bones; return meat
   to soup. Add carrots, onions, parsley, garlic,
   mustard, lasagne, and bleu cheese.  Cover and simmer 2
   hours more. Add cabbage; cook 5 mins. or until tender.
   Taste; add sat if necessary. Makes 8 servings. It
   sounds good to me. Let me know if anyone tries it.
