    I made a homemade navy bean soup yesterday with a ham bone I had in the freezer. It is so good and warming to the body in this cold Iowa winter weather. I love to make soups this time of the year. I will try putting a potato in it next time. Thanks for the recipe.

    Looks great, but potatoes cause IBS problems for me, what could I substitute in place of the potato?
