Soak 1 lb. great northern beans overnight.
Drain the soaked beans the next day, and then add fresh water.
Cut up: 6-8 slices of turkeybacon, a few carrots, some onion.
Boil together with beans; add: salt, accent, and celery seed to taste; also a little garlic powder or fresh minced garlic.
Simmer, stirring from time to time and adding water as needed. It takes several hours until the beans break apart, which thickens the broth.
