Sort & rinse beans, then place in a large pot, add enough water to cover by 2 inches & soak 8 to 10 hours. Drain & rinse. Tie vegetables, bay leaf, thyme & parsley in a cheesecoth bag. (If you don't have any cheesecloth, just add vegetables & herbs 'loose'). Place bag in large pot with beans, ham end, pork bone or bacon & enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover & simmer 1 hour, skimming occasionally. Add salt & continue cooking about 30 minutes longer or until beans are just tender.
