Here is another recipe that I adapted from Paul Prudhomme. JUDY'S RED BEANS AND RICE, (Adapted from Paul Prudhomme's recipe).

Sort and wash beans well. Cover beans with water 2" above beans and soak overnight. Drain just before using. Place ham hocks, beans, vegetables and seasonings in stockpot with ample water to cover beans by 1-2". Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for 1-½ hrs. or until beans are tender but not falling apart. Remove ham hocks and pick meat from bone. Add salt if desired. Add sausage and continue cooking until beans start to break up.

Add ham meat and serve immediately over hot cooked rice.
