    **Tinkerbell**'s Note:

    A crock pot version of 13 bean soup. Super easy & super yummy! I buy the 13 bean soup mix in the bulk section of my supermarket. It contains the 13 varieties of dry beans as follows: Baby limas, large limas, garbanzo, great northern, black-eyed peas, navy, black, red pinto, red lentils, green lentils, yellow splits, green splits, and kidney beans. Even my toddler had fun eating this soup. It was almost like watching a kid sort their M&M candies into colors! We took the opportunity to teach her the name of each bean as she picked it out to eat. Be sure to plan ahead, as the beans need to soak overnight or for 8 hours before cooking. (Cook time noted includes soaking time.) *Update December 2011: Since hosting the January 2011 Soupfest tag game in the Topic of the Month forum I have been using Sharon123's recipe for homemade Herb & Garlic broth (link in ingredients section) instead of just plain water as the soup base. It's absolutely delicious and so easy to make and store in the freezer. Feel free to use that recipe or any other broth for some or all of the water in the soup (not for soaking the beans).

      Quite good! Used turkey kielbasa instead of ham, and added a can of diced tomatoes about an hour from the end. Tasty and good for you. :D I would note that it took about 8 hours of cooking on low, and the beans still had a little bite to them. Thanks for posting!

      Exceptionally good! Used smoked turkey for flavor and 4c water/2c chicken broth. The flavor is incredible.

      We made this using a 10 bean mix we bought at Sprouts. We made a large batch and froze some for a later time. We enjoyed this with cornbread, but think I'll add some bouillon next time. Thanks for the recipe.
