I thought this recipe was good but was way too oniony and garlicy than i wanted it to be. In the end i ended up adding some brown sugar to cut the onion and garlic. Next time (if i use this recipe again!) i will use about half as much onion and garlic.

Good, simple and easy!!!! ( I even used a left over ham from thanksgiving!!!) I put a little into a blender to thicken it up a little ( just cause thats what I am used to when eating ham n beans) served with cornbread! YUM!

Best recipe for ham and beans I have ever tasted. Very simple to make. Great comfort food. I have to go bake more cornbread to sop up the leftovers.

This is hands-down the BEST ham n' bean recipe that I have ever eaten. I made this for a soup potluck at church and quadrupled the recipe. There wasn't a drop left and I had many people asking for the recipe. Very flavorful...simply delicious!

I used pinto beans instead of great northern beans, omitted the bacon and used 2 cups chicken broth and 4 cups water. I have made this a few times now and I think it is great. I pair it with sweet cornbread recipe also found on recipezaar.

Being life-long Northerners, my husband and I had never had anything like this before, and we both really enjoyed it. I will definitely make this again! I used fresh parsley, pinto beans (all I had in the house), and low-sodium chicken soup base in water instead of the cans of broth. The beans were a little overcooked after 8 hours, but that could be because pintos are a bit smaller.

This was great! I didnt use the low sodium but I will next time for sure! My husband loved it and kids sat quietly and ate their bowls all gone!

The chicken broth (instead of water) is key. I also added a half-cup of brown sugar for more depth of flavor. Yummmmm!
