    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.

      I had a lot of leftover pork roast, and chose this recipe because of it's good reviews. I must admit I was a little disappointed. I made it exactly as written, but when it was done, it was really a thin broth like a soup, and was bland. I added more of the spices, 2-3 times what the recipe called for, plus some cayenne pepper and nutmeg. I also added some cornstarch to thicken the broth. It was good after the adjustments, and we did like the clove/allspice seasoning.

      This is very good!!! I followed directions exactly, but my my beans were still hard after 8 hours ( crock pot must be getting old) and the broth did not taste so good, so I let it cook over night and I also added a chicken cube. Was really good next day the broth was delicious and creamy,the beans and ham were also good, will make this recipe again.
