This is definitely not your Grandma's bean soup...what a nice change! I couldn't stay home for the day, so I used my largest slow cooker...and I knew that everything would not fit. I cooked the beans on the stove for 2 hours, drained and put into the pot. I cut back on the carrots and the ham (my ham bone was very meaty anyhow) and the broth. I filled the pot with all of the spices, celery, onion, tomato, etc. just as listed and filled it to the top with chicken broth and let is cook on low for 10 hours. I took out the bone and added in about 2 cups of water and let it cook on high for about an hour. I used my submersible blender and whipped up some of the beans, but left it so it was still chunky and was just how we like it as far as thickness. EXCELLENT flavor!! Will definitely make this again.
