Crock Pot Ham Bone and Beans

READY IN: 8hrs 30mins
Recipe by Papa D 1946-2012

Many variations to Ham Bone (or Hocks) and beans but this is pretty much how I remember it from my childhood. I find by not soaking the beans they have better texture and flavor.I use Great Northern Beans as my favorite choice of bean for this recipe. I have used 15 bean mix with good results just omit the ham flavor packet.

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!
