How to Make Great Northern Bean N Ham Soup / Crock Pot

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..
