This recipe is SOOO easy!!!
*All I did was got a bag of Hurst's HamBeens (I bought mine at the local grocery store, the beans that it has are: Northern, pinto, large limas, blackeye, garbanzo, baby limas, green split pea, kidney, cranberry bean, small white beans, pink beans, small red, yellow split pea, lentil, white kidney, navy, and black beans)
*Ham Seasoning (came in the packet with the beans)
*About 4 cups of chopped ham (leftover Ham from Christmas)
First, you pick over the beans (make sure there's no rocks, dirt clumps, or yucky beans) Once you have them picked over put them in a colander and rinse them off really good. Put them in your crock pot and fill it up with water and let them soak over night.
When you are ready to start your soup drain all the water off the beans and put them back into the crock pot. Add 4 cups of chopped ham, give it a good stir and add just enough water to cover the beans and ham. Turn crock pot on high and let cook for about 4 hours. Stir it good a couple of times during the first four hours. After the 4 hours are up add the Ham Seasoning and salt and pepper and turn down on low, and let cook for about 3 more hours. I love this recipe because I don't think there's any way you can mess it up. It is sooooo yummy and smells wonderful!!! Happy cooking, my friends!!
