Soak the beans in at least 2 quarts of cold water for about 2 hrs. Drain the water. Put the ham shank pieces in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a simmer and simmer for about an hour. Add the chopped vegetables and beans. Cook for another hour, until the vegetables are soft and the ham meat easily pulls away from the bone. Add 6 drops of Tabasco sauce and the parsley. Add salt and pepper to taste.
