Easter Ham and Beans Recipe

You will need:

  • 1- package Hurst’s Great Northern HamBeens (can substitute 15 BEAN SOUP as well)
  • 1- leftover ham bone, with a good amount of meat still on the bone
  • 1- large onion, diced
  • 1- cup carrot, diced
  • 1- cup celery, diced
  • 2- cloves garlic, chopped
  • 7- cups water or chicken stock
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: Fresh thyme for garnish

Directions:

  1. Rinse and sort through the beans. Check for any unwanted debris and discard.
  2. In a 4-6 quart slow cooker, add rinsed beans and the rest of the ingredients, including Hurst’s Ham Flavor packet.
  3. Cook on high for 5 hours, or low for 7-8.
  4. Remove the ham bone from the pot. Shred or chop all of the remaining ham and add back into the beans.
  5. Tastes great with a generous shake of black pepper… and we prefer a little hot sauce on top too!
