dried great Northern beans, soaked overnight
cooked ham, chopped
water to cover
I had some left over ham from the holidays that I pulled out of the freezer and thawed out. Chopped it up, tossed the ingredients for this recipe into my crock pot, and ended up with a very tasty soup!
The only change that I made is that I added a can of chicken broth, then added water 2" to cover.
I'll be serving this with a plate of cornbread, and a cool spinach salad.
This recipe has a quick prep time, and tastes great! I'll be making this again!
This is quite possibly the worst "bean" recipe I have ever used. 1/2 cup of brown sugar combined with 1/4 tsp of cayenne is a terrible combination. I should have known better but was looking for a no brainer and saw the reviews where people had not changed this recipe and enjoyed it.
I was really excited about this recipe because its quick to assemble and totally easy to make. I followed the recipe exactly except i subbed kielbasa sausage for the ham because i didnt have ham. Unfortunately, the broth is REALLY sweet- so if you like sweet ham and beans (we dont) then this might be the recipe for you. If not, i would leave out the brown sugar or at least cut it WAY back.
I followed most of the instructions for this recipe but about half way through cooking I added fresh greenbeans, carrots, celery, and an onion to the soup. It turned out great and my boyfriend loved it. We ate it with cornbread and fresh watermelon.
They were easy to make and with lots of flavor! Although the recipe calls to cook on low for 12 hours, I found that not to be true with my cooker. Therefore, I would say cook time ranges from 3-12 hours. In addition to the onion powder, I added lima beans, chopped onions and two smoked ham hocks. If you have company for a couple of days, this is a wonderful recipe. Serve it with the cornbread muffins II—family and guest will love it! Also, this freezes well!
Very delicious, I enjoyed it. My family also gave it a thumbs up. I made it exactly as the recipe was written and next time I think I will try using a little less brown sugar.
This recipe is really easy and has more flavor than most bean recipes I've tried. My family loves it!
This was excellent. I served it over cornbread. Totally followed the directions to a T. Wouldn't change a thing.
