White Bean and Ham Soup

It was cold here today. And I had some ham that needed to used soon. I also had beans on hand, canned and dry. What would you do? Yup, to Pinterest I went!

After a quick search and reading a few recipes, I started to see a common element. They were using dry beans in the crockpot. Could it really be that easy? I've tried several Pinterest recipes with success, and a few stinkers. 

I did what the recipe said with a few modifications. After 3 hours, I checked the beans and they were no longer little stones! It was working!

An hour later, it was done. I was a little shocked at how easy it was and how good it tasted!

Here's my recipe:

  • 1 lb dry Great Northern Beans
  • 1lb. chopped up ham
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tsp onion powder

5-6 hours on High or 8-10 hours on Low. I have an awesome crockpot and it only took about 4 hours on High.

Enjoy! Let me know if you try it!
