Rinse, sort, and soak beans. Drain and empty them into a large pot. Add boiling water, garlic, and onion salt, thyme, and marjoram. Cover and simmer until beans are tender (2 1/2 to 3 hours). Don't let beans boil dry.
Add hot water as needed. Spoon out 3 cups of the cooked beans to use another day in another way. Mash rest of beans with their liquid. Add remaining ingredients plus 1 cup hot water. Heat at least 10 minutes to blend flavors. Makes 5-6 cups soup.
