    Sue Lau's Note:

    This is cheap eating at it's best. Really good for scraping by at the end of the month if your cash gets low. Goes best with freshly baked corn muffins drizzled with honey.

      This was a big hit. I used dried lima beans, to recreate my father-in-law's butter beans. DH said it was very close, and gave it a thumbs up. It did take longer than 8 hours to cook - next time, I'll start on high for a few hours, then switch to low. Served with cornbread. Thanks for sharing! -- Update: I've had good luck with cooking it for 3.5 hours on high, then 5 hours on low, or just 5 hours on high.

      These are the best beans I have ever had. I did my bean on the stove top. Soaked my beans over night, Drained and rinsed. left in the strainer while I added my onions and pepper to the pot, with a couple Tbsp olive oil. Sweated the onions on high, while I readied my garlic 5 cloves (left whole). Added garlic. Omitted the salt because I knew I was using ham and chicken stock. Added my beans back to the pot (this being about 9 am) then added 4 cups of water and 2 cups chicken stock. I also omitted the cloves. Added 1 Roma Tom, cut in half, and one small potato pealed, cut in half. (The tom and the potato are an old wives tale about helping with the gas...Maybe some truth to it?? Plus adds to the flavor and creaminess.) Tossed in two pork chop sized ham slices (thick peices) Once the pot came to a boil, I reduced the heat and covered, stirring occasionally. About 11 am (or two hours later) I added 2 more cups of water..(you have to watch the water on the stove top) Removed the Toms, garlic, potato and ham. Removed the skin on the tom. Mashed the garlic, tom and potato, returned to the pot. Flaked the ham apart and returned to the pot, adding the parsley at this time. mixed well. Re-covered, and simmered about a half hour and was done. Very good. Better than my mom used to make. =)

      This was fabulous! I used lima beans since that is our go-to bean, with smoked ham. I did throw in a dash or two of cayenne. I let it cook on low for 7 hours. I will definitely make these again. I made homemade buttermilk cornbread to accompany this and to soak up some of the juices left in the bowl. Yum!
