Slow Cooker Ham and Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2014
I omit the brown sugar, because I pick up a ham bone at the Honey Baked Ham Store for a few bucks. They trim the spiral sliced meat off the bones for sandwiches and to sell in smaller quantities than a whole ham. There is still a large amount of ham on the bone that didn't get used for those purposes: perfect for a batch of beans or pea soup. I live alone and this recipe is perfect for portioning into zip freezer bags for a quick warm-me-up in the winter. Awesome with PBJ sandwiches.

Frijoles de Olla

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2014
PERFECT! I couldn't remember the quantities. I used bacon grease and skipped the salt. For those seeking "creamier" beans, simply mash the beans, add water and cook for a couple more hours. Keep an eye on them. After beans are cooked, I don't actually refry them, but I do add lots of extras. I like sauteed onion and garlic, cumin and oregano -- mainly for beans I eat on their own with tortillas and chopped fresh tomato, and a dollop of crema fresca -- Mexican sour cream, which is kind of like loose cream cheese.
