I remember my mother making these when I was a child. You can't get much better on a cold night than Navy Beans and a slice of buttered corn bread. Home cooking at its best!

How to Make Navy Beans

Step-by-Step

  1. Place all ingredients in a crock pot. Add cold water until about 3 inches above the beans.
    Stir well.
  2. Cook in crock pot on low all day or about 6 - 8 hours until tender.
  3. You can soak the beans over night if you are using the stove top cooking method but I do not as I cook them in my crock pot.
  4. You can also substitute a ham hock for the bacon. Taste test for salt content. Serve with corn bread.
