"There are many variations of Ham and Beans and this recipe has been a work in progress and I am happy with the results. I think by not soaking the beans they have better texture and flavor. I have used the 15 bean mix with great results just omit the ham flavor packet."

The crock pot is a lifesaver during the hot weather. These beans are awesome! I used ham hocks and they gave them loads of flavor! We had the beans with burgers on the grill. So good!
