I will probably drive everyone crazy with ham recipes for a few weeks but we haven’t had ham here in over 2 years so I am really enjoying this.
I made great white northern beans in my crockpot for Mike and managed to grab 2 cups of them without the broth of this recipe. The recipe makes such a large pot of soup that beans barely raise the carb count. It also adds protein which is always a plus. I hope that you enjoy it.
