A football soup with lots of beans

The best way to get warm, stay warm and yell your favorite football team to victory in the windy autumn chill is to plant a Thermos jug full of a good hot country soup on the tailgate at the very start of your station-wagon-and-stadium picnic. Martinis, whisky or hot buttered rum no doubt will supply their share of energy and central heating at the game, but a soup like this stays with you. It should be made at home, thick, savory and nourishing—so thick, in fact, that it will have to be ladled out of a large-mouthed Thermos and eaten with spoons from bowls.

Soak hearts overnight, or at least 6 hours. In the morning drain and put in large heavy pot with water. Cook the onion in the butter for 5 minutes. Add onion and celery to beans. Simmer 3 or 4 hours until beans are soft, adding more water if needed. Put through a sieve. Reheat to boiling point and add the seasonings, well mixed together. Pour into scalded Thermos and close. Add Madeira, slices of avocado and lime at the game. Serves eight.
