    Wow, what a treat. I had the confit on low all day and was unsure of the outcome when I returned home from work. I lifted up the lid of the crock pot to find a delish blend of beans, meats and flavors. Really something different to try. I will make this again. Crusty bread and a glass of red made this a wonderfull meal.
