Grandma Swains Succotash

Sometimes the most simple recipes are the best.
This is a depression era recipe that is still popular today.

2 cups Navy beans (or Black eyed Peas)
2 cups diced ham in 1/2 inch pieces (leftovers work)
Potato (small cubes work best)
3 cans sweet corn
1 quart of whole milk
1 pint of cream

Soak the Navy beans overnight.
Cook beans until tender (about 4 hours on medium heat).
Drain beans and add them to a large sauce pan.
Add the corn, ham and cubed potatoes.
Add one quart of milk and start cooking.
Stir frequently or milk will burn.
Salt and pepper to taste.
(Start 1/2 teaspoon of pepper and one teaspoon of salt).
Add cream.
Add more milk if necessary to cover.
Just cook until hot.
Make sure it does not boil (will cause milk to curdle).
Serve over buttered bread.
