    Amanda Beth's Note:

    This is from the "Fix-It and Forget-It Cookbook" for slow-cookers. I love this, and do my husband and son. Make sure to add the vinegar at the end, it makes a big, delicious difference! We like ours with fresh cornbread.

      I loved the soup. It fit in perfectly with my diet plan. Very tasty, I wouldn't change a thing.

      The soup was fairly easy to make, and tastes okay. There's nothing wrong with it, it's just not something I'd give raves to. I added a splash of lime juice in addition to the vinegar for a bit more zing.

      We really loved the flavor of this wonderfully healthy bean soup. As per the recipe, I added the ham bone, plus some cubed ham, with the bean mixture. When I blended part of the mixure to thicken the soup, I lost some ham cubes into the blend. In the future, I will hold back the cubed ham until after the blend, to allow the chunks to remain intact. The flavor is wonderful. As others suggested, I did cut down on the salt and pepper somewhat. I've added this to my "A+ Favorites" cookbook!
