Lentils cook very well in a slow cooker. You can use any type of lentils you like for this recipe. If you can't find canadian Bacon, use ham.

Kitty- this is quite a good lentil soup. I grew up on lentil soup both with meat and without during the 40 days of lent. I make it often during the winter and of course during Lenten days. I enjoyed the flavors very much. I did use ham that I had glazed with maple from our trees, very similar in taste to canadien bacon. I will use this recipe often over the next few months interchanged with the one I grew up on. The broth was thick and hearty, blended wel with the beans and veggies and that bit of sweetness hinted in with the ham. I did not add any salt as the ham has it and we don't use salt very much here if it can be avoided. Wonderful and simple to make. Enjoyed with crusty french bread and a spinach salad. Made during TOTM Lentils/Beans Jan2010
