Measure Ingredient
1 pounds Kidney beans, dry
1 pack Smoked Polish sausage,sliced
7 cups Water
1 cup Barley
2 Garlic cloves; peeled
3 Bay leaves


Put rinsed beans in large saucepan. Add water, cover and let stand overnight.

Drain off water the next day. Put beans, barley and remaining ingredients into crockpot. Stir. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours. Remove bay leaves. Salt to taste when serving.

Sylvia's comments: I nuked the beans to fast-soak them, and it worked great. Even the kids liked this one! I used a fine-ground wurst instead of Polish sausage and cut it into bite-sized pieces before cooking. I also added some powdered beef stock to the water for cooking. Then I packed the soup into empty jars to take to work. It reheats great! Also worked well for a quick supper for the kids.

Definitely a keeper. I might add some chopped browned onions next time, though.
