Ingredients

2 lb
dry northern beans
1
hambone w/ meat or 2 ham hocks
extra
ham, chopped of not a lot on your bone or hocks ( i didn't have a lot of ham on my bone, so added cubed ham i had in the freezer)
2
carrots, sliced
2
sweet onions, chopped
2 stalk(s)
celery, sliced
6 clove
garlic, sliced
2
bay leaves
1/2 - 1 Tbsp
dried thyme
1 tsp
pepper
1 tsp
onion powder
2 Tbsp
chopped parsley
1/2 tsp
ground cloves
6 c
chicken broth
5 c
water
2 Tbsp
chicken bouillon paste
taste
before adding salt at the end

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Place your beans in a large bowl; cover with water and soak overnight. After soaking, pick through and discard any stones or shriveled beans. Rinse thoroughly and place in an 8 quart crock pot.

Add all remaining ingredients except for the chopped ham, unless you aren't using a bone. I just use the bone and its meat for cooking, then add other cubed ham at the end.
2
Once all ingredients are added; stir as best as you can - mainly to mix in the bouillon. Place on the lid. Turn pot on low and cook for 6 - 8 hours or on high for 4 - 5 1/2 hours; or until the bean are creamy. All pots cook differently. I started mine on low for the first 4 hours, then turned to high for another 3 1/2 hours...was perfect..
