4 qt chicken stock
1 bunch celery, with leaves, chopped
1 lb carrots, chopped
2 large onions, chopped
1 grated zest of 1 large lemon

1 large lemon, thinly sliced, then quartered

Combine beans in large saucepan with enough water to cover by 1".

large bowl with enough water to cover by 1"). Drain.

celery, carrots, onions and lemon zest. Bring to boil over high
heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, until liquid is
just below the surface of beans and ingredients are very tender,
2 1/2 to 3 hours.

processor and puree. Transfer puree to large bowl and add cooking
liquid (or puree solids and liquid to gether in blender).

Return soup to Dutch oven. Stir in lemon juice, salt and pepper
and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until heated through.
Place a lemon quarter in bottom of each bowl. Pour in soup and
serve immediately. Makes about 3 quarts or 10 to 12 servings.
