Ham And Bean In Your Slow Cooker



  • 2 meaty ham bones
  • 2 cups dry Great Northern beans
  • 2 cups celery chopped
  • 1 large onion finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic finely minced
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 8-9 cups chicken stock
  • Salt to taste


  1. Prepare dried beans by soaking them in cold water for 8-10 hours, then drain and rinse.
  2. Place all ingredients in your slow cooker, except salt.
  3. Heat on HIGH for 4 to 6 hours or until beans are tender.
  4. Remove ham bone. Chop ham from bone and return to slow cooker. Cover until heated through, about 5 minutes.
  5. Season to taste with salt. The beans may already be salty enough. So taste the beans before adding salt.
