Simple Bean Soup With Ham Bone. Photo by Carol in San Diego. This really is simple. No need to soak the beans for hours. add 2 bay leave and 2 TBS apple cider vinegar (after beans are soft). Tastes like it cooked all day. Probably wouldn't hurt if it did.
Crock Pot Ham Bone and Beans
Crock Pot Ham Bone and Beans from Food.com: Many variations to Ham Bone (or Hocks) and beans but this is pretty much how I remember it from my childhood. I find by not soaking the beans they have better texture and flavor.I use Great Northern Beans as my favorite choice of bean for this recipe. I have used 15 bean mix with good results just omit the ham flavor packet.
