This is my adaptation of a recipe I found in “The Unwatched Pot”. Total comfort food. Everyone in the family likes this one. It freezes very well and is creamier when it thaws.
- Place all of the ingredients in the crock pot.
- Add enough water to generously cover the beans.
- Cook on low for 8-10 hours or on high for 5-6.
- Remove ham hock.
- Discard fat and bones and return the meat to the soup.
