How to Make Ricks' Wretched Beans/Crockpot-Slowcooker


  • 11. Pick & rinse Beans

    2.Soak Beans overnight in water that covers well.
  • 23. Drain bean, toss water IF you want "less music" later, otherwise save water. ( in theory reusing the water adds flavor, in practice it adds gaseous emissions!)
    Add enough water to make 1 quart.
    (I used 1 quart fresh water to reduce toxins)
    Bring water to boil,(still using the pot on stove top) & add beans, simmer for 1/2 hour.
  • 34. Mix all seasonings & anything else that sounds good.
    Put in crock pot.
  • 45. Drain Beans again, save liquid OR use fresh water IF you know what's good for you........lolol
  • 56. Add Beans to crock pot & add enough water to cover by 1-inch.

    7.Arrange bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces on top of beans, cover with lid.
  • 68. Cook on HI until it comes to a boil, then turn to Low setting.
    Leave on low for 6 hours, stirring about once per hour OR two.
  • 79. Remove 1 cup beans, mash them, then stir back into pot.(optional)
  • 810. Cover again & cook on low for 4-6 hours OR as long as you can stand it.
    Continue to add water to keep beans just covered.
  • 911. Beans should be soft(usually split) when done.
  • 1012. Add weiners!!!!!!............. IF you insist!
  • 1113. Let the party begin!

    14. Enjoy!
