Inspect the beans for imperfections or stones and rinse them.

Place in a soup pot with 4 cups water. Bring to a boil and cook 10 minutes.

Remove from the heat and cool 30 minutes. Drain the beans and return them to the soup pot with the remaining 12 cups water.

Add the ham hocks, cover, and bring to a boil.

Reduce to a simmer.

Meanwhile, sauté the leeks, onions, garlic and thyme in the olive oil over medium heat until wilted, about 5 minutes.

Remove the hocks and cool.
