Savory Slow-cooked Northern Beans

by 247tasty

This recipe is another northern classic. A savory slow-cooked northern beans that are a family favorite. I grew up in this dish. I can still remember my Mom in the kitchen making this. It’s like a tradition to have this on our dining for a warm, hearty, and tasty weekend dinner. It’s very easy to prepare but the cooking time will take 6 hours, which is okay. Favorable even especially if you have other things to do around the house. You just have to put everything inside the slow cooker, occasionally check it and add some broth or water, and before you know it, dinner is ready. Now that I have kids of my own, and working full time, I get to make this for my family like how my Mom made it for us. And this dish saved me more than I can count! Thank goodness my Mom took the initiative to teach me how to prepare this savory beans when I was younger. I couldn’t agree more to my Mom when she said that this recipe is something to keep and share with others.
