About the name "Buckeye" Beans
Located on the quiet waters of the Little Spokane River, just a stone’s throw away from Spokane, Washington, the mill town of Buckeye was once a bustling community of three hundred residents. Lumber was cut from the surrounding pine and tamarack forests and milled at the Buckeye Lumber Company. Boxes made from first grade lumber were shipped from the Buckeye Box Factory to various parts of the United States via the Spokane Falls and Northern Railroads. Many local commercial apple growers shipped their fruit in Buckeye boxes. By 1912, the mill was closed and most of the townsfolk had moved on. The Buckeye Beans company was founded just downstream from this sleepy little town and was inspired to create genuine products that reflect the "simpler" way of life." Hearty soups on the back burner and beans baking in the oven provide a flavor of days gone by.
Love this soup. I put my own spin on it as follows:
In addition to the onions, I also add diced carrots and celery. Sauté in about one tablespoon olive oil add the seasoning packet to the veggies. Now add the canned diced tomatoes, rinsed lentils and the water. Bring to a boil, turn down the heat and simmer for about 40 minutes. Add the meat* bring back to simmer for 10 minutes.
*For the added meat I use about 10oz diced andouille sausage and about 7oz diced ham.
If you have a Trader Joe's in your town you can purchase the veggies already diced. To cut down the fat, TJ's has a chicken andouille which is quite good
I made this for the first time today, so I followed the recipe exactly. I spent time and money to make this and found it to taste like hot water with chili flavoring. I am so deeply disappointed. We eat a lot of soup in my home and this brand will not be one of them.
Great product. We make it with less water so it is more like a hearty soup or stew and don't always add meat. Great customer service too.
I was a huge fan of Buckeye Beans & Herbs back in the 80s when they had a full product line including fun shaped pasta and more soups. Chicken 'N Thyme was the first one I had tried and I loved. My favorites were always Chicken 'N Thyme, Great Leapin' Lentils, Beefed-Up Barley, and Barley Burgoo (which unfortunately Seattle Gourmet Foods isn't producing - PLEASE RECONSIDER IF POSSIBLE!).
I was so upset when the line was sold off in 1997 and then completely discontinued as the company that bought it went bankrupt in 1999.
I stumbled across 3 favorites, plus the Pea Soup (favorite of my Mom's) in the Christmas Tree shop and was thrilled!
You can't go wrong with these soups and I always have to make double batches when I make them.
Try different sausages with this one, I like to use Andoille sometimes for an extra kick.
