I love soups and stews and all winter foods! Here's a blend that you can mix in bulk and have on hand all year round! You can also can it using the method described here.

Best Bean Blend
Equal parts of these dried beans:
navy beans
great northern beans
pinto beans
red beans
yellow split peas
green split peas
black eyed peas
large lima beans
small lima beans
barley, hulled or pearled (hulled is much better!)

To use, soak overnight in water, then rinse and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil and then cover and simmer for several hours until softened. Use in any soup recipe.
