    Mami J's Note:

    This is a slow cooker recipe. The beans in it can cooked up to 2 days in advance. It may be cooked for 6 1/2 to 7 1/2 hours on low or 5 1/2 to 6 1/2 on high. It takes quite a bit of preparation, so it's served for special occasions. From Sunset magazine, slightly modified. Posted for ZWT 5.

      Wow, what a treat. I had the confit on low all day and was unsure of the outcome when I returned home from work. I lifted up the lid of the crock pot to find a delish blend of beans, meats and flavors. Really something different to try. I will make this again. Crusty bread and a glass of red made this a wonderfull meal.
