    Red beans in the crockpot?

    I'm making Anita Harris's Spicy Red Beans & Rice #48913 in the crockpot for dinner tonight. I've made this many times, but never in the crockpot.

    I'm quick-soaking my beans now (boil then leave covered for 1 hr.). My question is, should I cook this on HIGH? Beans take a loooong time to cook at a regular simmer, so I'm thinking that HIGH would do it.

    I don't want to end up with hard beans at 5 : oo today. icon_confused.gif

    The first thing I would ask you is ... are you going tobe home all day to check on them if you cook them on high?? I have cooked mine on low all day and they were fine. Use your best judgement. Good Luck, Kathy

    The other reviewers had perfect results following the directions. One said that it took hers 11 hours. If you're worried, medium heat should be fine.

    Either 8 - 10 hours on low or a lot less time on high. The only time I got hard beans in the crockpot was when I salted them BEFORE cooking.

    I didn't have 11 hours, more like 7. Also, my ham bone was frozen. I did cook it on high, since I usually simmer it on the stove for about 4 hours, and it turned out great. I think if I had cooked it on low it wouldn't have been done in time. Thanks. icon_wink.gif
