Prosciutto Heel Soup



3c 13 Bean Mix
1 Prosciutto di Parma Heel
7 Tomatoes
7 Garlic Cloves
3 Yellow Onions
6 Yellow or Red Potatoes
Salt
White Vinegar

“Prosciutto di Parma heel?  What in the hell is that?”  Well, fucknuts, it is the end of an Italian cured pork leg that self-respecting butchers can no longer slice to sell.  These can be acquired for a super low price or even for free since most places just throw them in the dumpster like a dead hooker.  Typically you would never cook prosciutto for any real length of time but the heel is an exception, a very tasty exception.          

Soak the beans overnight in an assload of water.  Drain and rinse.  “I only have a 12 bean mix.  Will that work?”  No, dumbass.  It has to be 13.  Dump them in a big ass pot with the prosciutto heel.  Pour in 13 cups of water.  Bring it to a boil and simmer for an about an hour.  It will require vigilant fat skimming.

In the meantime, core the tomatoes, stuff a garlic clove in each one, and place them hole down on a baking sheet.  Peel the skin off the onions, halve them widthwise, and place them on the same baking sheet.  Drizzle with oil, sprinkle with salt, and put them in a 250 degree oven for about an hour and a half.

Cut the potatoes into large chunks and throw them in the pot after the first hour mark.  When the tomatoes, garlic, and onion are done, mash them up and throw them in too.  Add salt and vinegar to taste.  Once everything looks done, turn off the heat and remove the heel.  Trim off all the bullshit, tear apart the meat, and return it to the pot.  Stir and serve.  Eat it.
