SLOW COOKER HAM & WHITE BEANS

by Sheryl

It’s a very easy recipe. It cooks a large bone of ham in the crockpot all day. It uses a pound of dried beans Throughout the year the shop of Honey Baked Ham sells ham bones. If you don’t have a ham bone, you can use ham hocks or a few chopped hams. I love the creaminess of white beans together with the salt of the ham. It is super simple with a very short ingredient list. It makes us a very pleasing surprise if you dig into and discover how incredibly good it is.¬†This is the best food for convenience! This delicious comfort, creamy meal goes well with a sweet bread of maize. Take a few leftovers the ham hocks, then get ready to cook.

Ingredients:

1 lb package dried northern beans
1 lb ham bone (hocks, shanks or diced ham)
2 tsp onion powder
6 cups of water
salt and pepper, to taste

Directions:

1. Rinse the beans and sort them for any pebbles. To the crockpot, add beans, powdered onion, salt, pepper, and ham. Add water then cover and cook about 8 hours, tenderly, on low.

2. Remove bone of ham, shanks or hocks, and pull off the meat. In the crockpot add meat and mix. Serve with cornbread.

Tip:

1. You can add vegetables to the dish such as carrots and celery to add color and of course a much healthier dish.

2. It will last for 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator

3. To lower any added salt, you should dry the beans and rinse them well. The use of low sodium products will naturally decrease in cooking time for a few hours.

4. All the hams have huge salt. Many of our hams are covered with sweet or other candies. You’ve got plenty of fat on the surface too.

5. To remove surface sugar, use running water. Remove any fat you can. And pay attention to the sodium.
