Mom asked me to get her 2 packages of beans while I was at the store the other day, and then she asked me to soak the beans for her (since she was coming in the early morning to watch my kids yesterday). So I soaked 2 packages of beans. That’s a lot of beans. So she made some soup for me in my Crockpot.
Easy Bean and Ham Soup
1 package of dried Great Northern beans (about a pound), soaked overnight
Some ham (I had a package of ham steaks – about a pound; or leftover ham)
Some carrots (I had some matchstick carrots left in the fridge – easy route, no shredding)
oh, and some water – kinda important 🙂
Cook in the Crockpot on high for about 5 hours (give or take). You’ll want to taste it and see if it needs salt (depends on how salty your ham was). If you leave it on low for another couple of hours, you get mush (which some people like). We like to eat ours with some shredded mozzarella.
