Crock Pot Ham Bone Bean Soup

Posted in : Gluten Free, Soups on by : poppop

Crock Pot Ham Bone Bean Soup. My mother always made this with a leftover ham bone. She did it in a big stock pot and stirred it regularly for the 1 1/2 to 2 hours that it took. I used to do the same but just recently started using a crock pot to make our “Crock Pot Ham Bone Bean Soup”. It’s easy and it works out great. Just fill it, set it and forget it.

Put all the ingredients in your crock pot, aka slow cooker, and fill the pot with water almost to the rim that the lid nests in. We got this Hamilton Beach on amazon and it’s been working out real good.

Set it for 8-10 hours at low or 4-5 high. The time shown in the recipe is the average of the low or high setting and the variables of different slow cookers.

Before you serve it up take the bone out and remove the ham and fat from the bone. Trash the bones and fat. Cut up or break up any big pieces of ham and put them back in the soup.

Now wasn’t that easy? And, It’s very good.
