‘Save that Pork Juice 16 Bean Soup’

Whoa. This early morning was officially the first pull the coat out of the closet your going to need it day.

Brrr. First day of put on your coat in the early morning also snaps me right into the mode that the beautiful season of fall is indeed upon us, and I can finally buy some bright colored mums and be inspired by a little fall decorating, along with some apple picking too. The first chill also has me real excited to share with you a new season favorite, I call it ‘Save that Pork Juice 16 Bean Soup.’


The soup came about while helping to clean up after a friends party in the early spring, when the remaining accumulated juice from the pork in the slow cooker was about to get poured straight down the drain. Of course, I didn’t yell out ‘Save that Pork Juice 16 Bean Soup,’ though I did quickly intervene on straining and saving the Pork juice before later instructing on its tasty possibilities.

Really you can use any remaining juices and broths from the Dutch Oven to your slow cooker to magically transform your soups into having much tastier flavor profiles beginning your process simply following soup making basics then combining your given amount of flavored juices with other broth, or even water, to equal the amount of  liquid needed.

Beans of course, absorb a lot of liquid. You can even label and freeze any remaining juices, saving them for later on if you’ve not the time to make soup shortly after preparing the dish from where you collected the juice.

You could even get really crazy and combine a few different types of saved frozen juices for your soup. The key point to remember from gatherings with family and friends to Slow Cooker specials at a Tailgate or Team Family Dinner is: ‘Save that Pork Juice’ and later then you too can enjoy creating your own seasonal favorite like my ‘Save that Pork Juice 16 Bean Soup.’
