Followed the recipe to a T. At the end of the day the beans and peas were still crunchy, ordered take out and let soup continue to cook. I checked it before bed, still not done, turned off crock pot for the night. Day 2, turned the crock pot back on low first thing in the morning. Dinner time came around, couldn't believe that they were still not done! Pulled leftovers out of the fridge and let soup continue to cook again. Day 3 turned the crock pot back on, put it on high this time. Cooked all day on high and FINALLY it was done by dinner. Added the tomatoes and cooked the last half hour. Finished product was very good but I won't be making this again. Sorry.Reply
Although this soup is very filling and great tasting I soaked the beans overnight just to be on the safe side and the beans were still a bit undercooked but this could be because I live at high altitude and always need to make adjustments for that. Next time I think I will pre-cook the beans just a bit before putting them in the crockpot to commensate for the high altitude. Thanks for sharing!2Reply
