  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 medium onion finely diced
  • 2 sticks celery diced
  • 2 carrots diced

to serve

  • a tablespoon chopped parsley  (optional)

Preheat the oven to 180o C

In a deep heavy oven proof pan or casserole on a medium heat, add olive oil and onions. Cook the onions until they are soft transparent and just starting to change colour. Add the celery and carrots and cook for a further 2-3 minutes. Add water, tomatoes, herbs, spices, bay leaves sugar and ham hock and beans.   Cover the pot and place in the oven for about 2 hours checking and stirring occasionally (add a little more water as you go if required) The beans are cooked when they are tender and the sauce is thickened.  About 1 hour into the bean cooking time prick the chipolatas with a fork and place on a tray in the oven bake until lightly browned (about 20 minutes ) then add to the beans for the last 40 minutes of their cooking time.  When the beans are tender remove the ham hock, shred the meat from the bone and return to the casserole. Check the seasoning. Serve hot with crusty bread. Perfect for breakfast lunch or dinner. Serves 6.
