20 oz. pkg. Hurst's Great Northern Hambeens (our 15 BEAN SOUP works as well!)
2 cups diced ham, leftover ham works great
1 yellow onion, diced
3 carrots, peeled and diced
3 celery stalks, diced
2 tsp. dried thyme
1/4 tsp. pepper
8 cups chicken broth
salt to taste
Place the beans in a colander and sort out any debris, rinse beans and add to the slow cooker.
Add the ham, onion, carrots, celery, thyme, pepper and chicken broth, stir. Wait to add the ham flavor packet.
Cover and cook on HIGH for 6-7 hours without opening the lid during the cooking time.
When the cooking time is done, add the ham flavor packet and stir. Add salt to taste. Serve and enjoy!
Works great with a package of our 15 BEAN SOUP also! Follow the same recipe.
