      Easy. Tasty. Simple substitions worked well.<br/><br/>I had a taste for beans and found your recipe. I had to sub bacon drippings for the pork/ham since I didn't have any onhand (and skipped the butter). I also used a mixture of chicken broth / water. <br/><br/>I've made several great northern bean recipes in the crock pot. All were a disappointment till this one.<br/><br/>Thanks!

      I had some salt cured pork...super salt cured. I didn't put any extra salt in just what was in the ham. Turned out great. I did add some onion powder and white pepper instead of the pepper flakes. My hubby's not a big fan of pepper flakes.
