I have always enjoyed a batch of 15 bean soup. Today it got over the top when I used 2 quarts of smoked water and the dirppings of two butts from my water pan. I froze it about a month ago and have been waiting to use it in something. i beleive I found the perfect use for it, SOUP BASE. not salty like a base you would purchase at the store, and more flavor than you could ever get out of something purchased.
