Outstanding! I didn't monkey around with the ingredients, and used 8 cups of the chicken broth and a meaty ham bone. It was absolutely delicious!
This was very good! I had a very meaty ham bone leftover from Christmas dinner. I used kidney beans that I soaked overnight (I had already started soaking when I found this recipe), more onion and some carrot, but left out the celery since I don't like it. This cooked all day on low. We took the ham bone off and cut the ham and put it back in, and then added 2 bags of boil in bag brown rice (we opened the bags and poured it in) with it cooking on high. Nice on a cold windy night, and there is enough to freeze for another meal.
My soup is not finished yet,but I took the suggestion from the writer, to not soak the beans. A mistake! After 81/2 hours, in a slow cooker on low, the beans are still hard. Next time I will do the tried and true method and soak them!
Holy yum! I followed the recipe but I added an 8oz can of tomato sauce and 3 coarsley chopped sweet potatoes to my crock pot. The sweet potatoes came out incredibly creamy/tasty! I also added about 2/3-3/4 of a cup of orzo to the crock pot about 15 min before serving (I used orzo only because it was left over in my cupboard. It was fine but elbow macaroni would have been more appropriate). Wow. I will certainly make this again!
This was a great bean soup! I failed to use low-sodium broth and it was a bit salty but thats my fault. The beans were cooked perfectly. Everytime I have a ham bone I'm going to cook this soup. Thanks!
Very good and filling! I soaked my beans and used 3 ham hocks. I also used 2 cans of chicken broth and 1 can of beef broth along with 1 small can of V-8. Delish! Thanks for sharing this keeper!
I had two meaty ham bones in the freezer so I threw them both in. I also added extra garlic. My family felt it was okay, but lacked flavor/seasoning. I have lots left over so I may play around with it some. Served with tossed salads and warm buttermilk biscuits.
I didn't have a crock pot so I put it all into a regular stove-top pot and left it over the burner on low. I have never had the great white bean but it is now one of my favorite. This was an excellent dish. I must have bought a really fatty ham because it took forever to separate the meat from all of it.
Simple and tasty. Really had that down home taste. Wife doesn't like ham and beans, or the smell. Came home to house with windows open in 40 degree weather! It was worth it!
This was simple, flavorful and filling. A great use for a ham bone. The longer it simmers, the better it gets, and it's even better reheated the next day. Thanx for sharing!
